About the video:

This video documents an exhibition of No Kill Shelter, an ongoing project featuring an array of objects born from interests in materials, waste, and old devices: screensavers. Animated loops inspired by mesmerizing computer graphics play on discarded monitors and computers hand decoupaged with wrapping paper. Highlighting rapid technological obsolescence and the role of abstract animation in everyday life, the screensavers question the preciousness and fetishization of “antiquated” tools and the relationship between fine art, design and craft.
