Screensaver is an animated photomontage – assembled with content found online and photographs collected from daily encounters.
Invented to prevent phosphor burn of CRT monitors also known as ghost image screensavers initially served the function of impeding screen damage from overload and repetition. The work playfully studies the screensaver by applying this initial purpose as a metaphor to contemporary human life.
How do we as human species prevent damage through encumber and ennui, cope with mortality, and enjoy life? Taking the viewer on a visually intricate journey Screensaver starts off in a horror attraction park, slowly zooming out into the intestines of machinery, vaguely unraveling life’s puzzling riddles.
