Feeling empathy towards abstract concepts

Artist Ed Fornieles created an universe in which cute creatures called Finiliar evolves emotionally. As different currencies and stocks lose and gain values over short and long period of time, the Finiliar becomes sick or happy according to the market. 

I've developped a system fetching different cryptocurrency values, currency values and stock values to feed the creatures in realtime. 

As time goes by and datasets evolve; finiliars evolve. This art piece is also condemned to evolve or die as the tools used to build it existed in a locked timeframe in which plugins, APIs and software were different than today and tomorrow.
