Over the last few months, we’ve received a number of enquiries about who we and where we come from. Here’s a bit of background information for the curious…
The Turbulence collective first came together in the (northern-hemisphere) spring of 2006, although many of us knew each other and had worked together before that.
Our number has fluctuated between 7 and 9 members. At times the collective is tight-knit: small and almost perfectly formed (if not informed). Occasionally it borders on the dysfunctional. More often, it cycles between these two extremes.
We live variously in Berlin, Leeds, London, Porto Alegre and North Carolina.
To be kept informed about future projects, and to receive Calls for Papers for future publications, sign up to our newsletter (if you have difficulties, write to us at the address below). You can also find us on Facebook via the widget to the right of this article and on Twitter @turbulence_mag
