All Over is a piece of Internet art by Samuel Bianchini, involving a series of images formed uniquely out of typographic characters, in the manner of ASCII art, made using the display techniques of the first computers. Here, however, the figures and letters composing the images are dynamic and keep changing: they are generated in real time by the fluxes on stock exchanges around the world. Originating fixed photographs, these transformed images are thus dependent on financial movements, which both feed and disrupt them at the same time. Destabilized by the display system, their meaning in turn becomes unstable. Held between the digital and the financial, between two regimes of representation, these pictures without captions seem to be constantly struggling for their visibility and their uncertain reality: demonstration, traders, supporters, a religious or political rally...?
