Transactions Graph is the network model created to generate list of predictions about future spending. It shows the unprocessed model of dynamic relationships between transaction items and their effects changing overtime. Its topology intensifies or de-inensifies depending on the quality and force of the relations. Each node represents a transaction and connected to each other through categories and dates. Thickness of connecting lines shows the total spending amount of the paired transactions. At a given timeframe, the last day's purchases and the two weeks of past spending are shown.
This piece is part of MYPOCKET, a 2007 commission of New Radio and Performing Arts, Inc. (aka Ether-Ore) for its Turbulence web site. MYPOCKET discloses the artist's personal financial records to the world by exploring and revealing essential patterns in the daily transactions of his bank account. These are the records that we usually keep secret, whereas financial institutions intensively analyze them to score our credibility. Archived on the site, the artist's two years of spending history is analyzed by the custom software to predict future spending; these predictions sometimes determine his future choices, creating a system in which both the software and the artist adapt to one another.
