Screensaver Series is a kaleidoscopic performance installation involving 5 dancers and a musician/coder Jamie Forth. Relationships between movement—physical, virtual and abstract—and technology are the subject of research. With an interest in neurodiversity, Screensaver Series attempts to emulate a “background” state in which the movement of colour and patterns are foregrounded in between other types of demand and activity. Screen-saver mode is here imagined as a moratorium on meaning making, a pause in processing, and a space in which something else can unfold.
Supported by Dance Umbrella’s Re-Search Programme in partnership with ResCen Research Centre, Middlesex University and supported using public funding by the National Lottery through Arts Council England, Sadler's Wells, South East Dance, Trip Space, Brandwatch, Brighton Digital Festival, Trip Space and Pola Art Foundation through research grant funds allocated by Naoto Hieda for participation in Choreographic Coding Lab in Amsterdam.
