Screensaver Series accelerated

Screensaver Series is a kaleidoscopic performance installation involving 4-5 dancers, a choreographer, and a musician/coder. 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.
