Illogical Logic
2012

Many superstitions and irrationalities are often hidden or ignored in our society. The US economy, for instance, can lose up to $2.4 billion a year due fears of Friday 13th. Whilst in times of uncertainty, we become even more superstitious and irrational. So in a time of both Economic and Financial Crisis, we find ourselves occupied in a world which is becoming more and more uncanny.

The compilation of books contain a series of publications that are a response to these real and factual research. Book One contains the essays and case studies of these Irrationalities, whilst the other three books act as accompanying text and visuals to the three materialized projects.

The Publications are: Irrational Essays, How I made a Fund... A Superstitious One, A Manual for an Uncanny Stock Market and How to Value a Ghost
