Using footage of an accident captured from a dashcam, DASH considers how the crash – or crisis – becomes legible within a risk-managed and financially hedged era. From this limit-space where one can never truly know what might come next, a fantastic speculative economy – populated by the likes of 'black swans' and 'dragon kings’ – is produced in order to affirm some narratives while extinguishing others.
