NEVER STOP STOPPING is a focus group on the figure of the trader and its relationship to stock markets. The focus group aims to deconstruct the myth of the trader as an operator in control of the stock market, and the myth of the market as a machine intended to be driven.

Instead, framing money as an autonomous device able to create its own survival circuits, the focus groups discusses the stock market as one such circuit, in this case dominant, repositioning the trader as a passive actuator (sub) bowing to the intensities of the market (DOM).

This relationship is explored through the collective watching of autodidactic trading material and discussion of trading interfaces. NEVER STOP STOPPING was first held as part of the MA Graphic Media Design at London College of Communication in 2018.
