Sleepmode: The Art of the Screensaver

I am curating an exhibition called Sleepmode: The Art of the Screensaver.
It opens January 26 at the Nieuwe Instituut in Rotterdam.

27 lifesize projections of all the classics… Windows, Apple, After Dark, and many others. It’s a survey of screensavers, from the very first (a black screen) all the way to now. There will also be an audiotour with background stories as you walk through the exhibition.

We also made an extensive web-publication, which has writings, videos, source material and interviews with the screensaver creators.
