MIRAGE/DOWJONES is a flight through the realtime stock market indices of the Dow Jones Industrial Average Index. The 65 indice values imitate a continuous shifting mountain range.

During the trading hours (NYSE: 9:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.) the incoming data sets, polled from Yahoo Finance at a delay of 15 minutes, are analysed by a markov chain monte carlo algorithm to generate a detailed distribution of the successive changes of each stock.

When the stock market goes to “sleep” the software starts to “hallucinate” the course based on its anaysis during the trading hours.
