The Current Situation re-appropriates the game “buzz wire”, in the form of a world map where up to 8 players can navigating the world, complete with internal borders ( contested and established)  with a handheld wand. Its hugely fun and engaging, as when you mistakenly make contact with a border, you trigger a red warning light and alarm, and feel a buzz.

The politically charged nature of global boarders and the power they hold in terms of shaping geographies and identities, and the impact that is felt when national boarders are challenged and when they shift, is literally played out.
