Dancing Stocks

Watching the daily stock market reports on the news, with their constant up and down swings, feels like watching a macabre dance.
This animation is based on stock market data and shows its remove from reality by placing the ghostly objects pulled along by data on the outermost planet in our solar system.
The music is similarly generated based not on daily but weekly and monthly data from the same stock exchanges.
