CURRENT

Domain: www.current.cam

The infinite scroll of contemporary livestreams posits extraordinary moments alongside the infinitely mundane. By supplementing this current streaming condition with algorithmic personalization, Current is a cinematic exploration providing new ways of seeing that collapse viewers’ past archives with their predicted futures, planar images with volumetric data, and personal POVs with planetary perspectives. As this generated content enters intimate and social spaces, a new economy of values emerges with the potential to refashion relationships between individuals and environments.

In imagining this infinite stream, Current explores the nonlinear mashup of live streaming culture, algorithmically generated content, deep fakes, personalized narratives and ambient environmental feeds. In this way, the project seeks to configure a new aesthetic vocabulary by entangling different scales, temporalities and affective experiences.
