Points in Time

Screen savers. The software Apple forgot. MacOS came out in 2001, and the included screen savers have basically not changed since then.

Screen Saver Supply is currently the web's only source for new Mac screen savers, and here you'll find a collection of (post)modern, pop-culture inspired creations that can be both practical and used as a form of self-expression.

Why screen savers? For one thing, if Apple ever releases a television* I believe the screen saver will become a sought after type of software again.
This hypothetical TV would presumably be made to be 'always on', in which case its users will probably want the screen to show something that complements or matches the interior design of the room it's in, when not otherwise in use.


*There are no publicly announced plans for this.

I also just really like to design these types of "programmable animations" that (for the most part) aren't just repeating loops. The ability to incorporate code into artistic creations has always been the most interesting and unique aspect of digital art to me.
The work here probably isn't worthy of being considered art, though, but then again it's also not really at the level (aesthetically or technically) I want it to be... yet. And it might never get to wherever that is, but at least this is a start.

In the first part of The SF Trilogy, I wanted to draw attention to the inherent beauty of the shapes that make up the San Francisco typeface.

All screen savers can be downloaded for free. But you also have the option to pay if you feel generous. All proceeds, if there ever are any, will be reinvested in the project.
However, it's totally OK if you don't want to pay, because more than anything I'm just honored if you want to install my work on your computer.
SSS-0091.03.1
