Both an installation and performance using custom-built and hacked mass-produced and discarded computer fans to create wind and sound. The installation uses weather data from around the world to recreate the wind speeds occurring in other countries, in Edinburgh, in real time. The performance element features a small ensemble playing the fans as instruments, controlling the movement of air in various ways.

Currents was part of the 2014 Edinburgh Art Festival. A series of free concerts took place in various cities across the UK over the summer.
