Screens of the Future is an ongoing moving image artwork consisting of visionary prototypes based on the emerging technologies of flexible displays, shape-shifting materials and context-aware functionality. There are currently 22 short films in the series, compiled here as one moving image work. Each individual Screens of the Future film serves as a product demo of our near future, and together they highlight humanity’s increasingly integrated relationship with technology.

Screens of the Future is a production by visionary digital art and design collective Universal Everything. It was by Universal Everything's creative directors Matt Pyke and Mike Hughes, senior producer Greg Povey and animation director Chris Perry, in collaboration with a global network of talented animators: Matt Frodsham, DXMIQ, Rita Louro, Nicola Gastaldi, Wang & Söderström, Ben White, Joe Street, and Kouhei Nakama. The first four films in the series were debuted at Universal Everything’s solo exhibition Anthropologies at Sheffield Institute of Arts Gallery at the end of 2016, and all 22 have since been released via Universal Everything's Vimeo and Instagram accounts.
