All That Is Solid Melts Into Air

Recently reminded of the work All that is Solid Melts into Air by the artist Mark Boulos. I originally saw this work in Amsterdam years ago, but last night came across a BBC Arts Radio interview with the artist as it is currently being screened in New York. The work is a two screen video installation exploring oil as a commodity, with one screen focusing on the Movement for the Emancipation of the Niger Delta, and on the other the Futures Exchange in Chicago.
