Conturbative is a transdisciplinary research project made during the minor “Re-imagining Tomorrow through Arts & Sciences”, part of the Rotterdam Arts and Sciences Lab.  A multitude of wicked issues surrounding the topics of identity, data, representation, the hero and more are taken into account during the research by the collective. The campfire is the embodiment of that research. By transforming the ancient ways of storytelling; of the hero that comes back to boast his victories around a campfire, a single linear perspective, towards a digital campfire with multitudes of perspectives and a horizontal narrative. The campfire is fluid there is no hierarchy, just a turbulent spectacle which requires excellent listening skills. Gathered around and listen attentively to the other, that is what our world needs.
