In finance, the terminal value of a security
is the present value at a future point in time of all future cash flows
when we expect stable growth rate forever.
This concept is used in Corporate finance and investment banking
What is the terminal value of
our life´s work / of art?
By letting the audience interact with the installation,
christian blau gave up the 'auratic control'
The 3 phases of the installation
function as allegories of:
failure / self-destruction, creativity and entropy
