We aim to embrace and mediate near-future developments in society from a properly crafted perspective based on the investigation of the converging interactions between creators, designers, and thinkers together with emerging variety of inventors and adopters of exponential technologies across culture, education, and economy.
Confluence-driven approach is our paradigm how to understand, navigate, accelerate, and influence conditions and expectations we have of the future.
Exploring current trajectories that future opens for us as possible, probable or preferable, we dedicate our efforts to generate collaborative opportunities in research, creation, and education, serving as a catalyst for impactful initiatives.
Creativity & Criticality & Exponentiality
These terms may have been perceived as unrelated in the past. Yet, their confluence and new meanings are at the roots of today and future.
Creativity as an unlocking power of imagination can be equally found in art, design, thinking, engineering, scientific exploration, but also in business.
Criticality is no longer just a philosophical or political term; it has turned into a general and needed capacity to investigate and merge diverse contexts and provide plausible hypothesis on the edges of the possible across all domains of knowledge and action.
Exponentiality, driven by accelerating speed of change, is transforming merely everything. Without reclaiming and reinforcing the very purpose of changes, we may find ourselves lost in singularity of a machine universe.
Looking around, it has become obvious that we live in times of ever faster discursive changes and challenges. We learn, feel, and label differently. As some disciplines, systems, and values vanish; hybrid and new ones emerge. Technological penetration is exponential, and so are the transformations in behavior, services, and products all around us. We believe it is crucial to facilitate new connections and link what could have formerly been isolated. This is the entry gate for confluence. We bring together creativity, criticality, and exponentiality in an open network of sparkling agency derived from originality, capacity, and competence.
