The Current Team is an interdisciplinary / intercultural collective. Our four core members – Provides Ng, Eli Joteva, Ya Nzi, and Artem Konevskikh – are architects / researcher / artist / CG specialist / engineer / data analysts / particle physicist / maker from China / UK / Bulgaria / USA / Russia. ‘The Current Team’ also indicates its broader network of creative commons / collaborators from all around the world (https://www.current.cam/evolutions), where the virtual space is, at the same time, what enabled our cross-territorial collaborations and what constantly reminds us of the importance of treasuring the affective values from physical interactions.
With the emergence of planetary computation, data analytics, and algorithmic governance, the Current Team seeks to bridge communication between digital technology, its folk ontology, and their impacts on urbanism. The team employs visual-driven analytics to investigate contemporaneity and speculate on our future. They consider visual aesthetics not as supplementary to happenings, but possess intrinsic cultural values that are uncertainly measurable with existing institutional metrics.
The Current Team works with creatives worldwide. They comprehend across cultural and disciplinary landscapes to knit a global network of connections. The team feels the urgency to amalgamate the distributed social and technological capacities into an operable soft infrastructure that complements our physical architectures.
