Dr Lila Moore is the founder of The Cybernetic Futures Institute (CFI), a networked platform and online academy for the exploration and study of tech-noetic arts and consciousness with an emphasis on the spiritual in art and film. The courses and workshops take place online and in central London (Islington). Lila is an artist film-maker, screen choreographer, networked performance practitioner, educator and theorist. The CFI is based on her post-doctoral project at Planetary Collegium of Plymouth University (2014-2015).
Dr Moore holds a practice-based Ph.D. degree in Dance on Screen (2001) from Middlesex University and an M.A. in Independent Film and Video from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London. She researched film and the spiritual as Associate Research Fellow, London Metropolitan University, and has been teaching B.A. courses in Film, Media and Contemporary Spiritualities, Film and Ritual as well as The Spiritual in Art as part of a BA in Mysticism and Spirituality at Zefat Academic College. She has presented her work internationally in academic conferences, cultural organisations, art galleries and networked platforms.
The CFI's creative activities and online courses are metaphorically embedded in proto-type 'morphic fields.' The fields are activated by Networked Rites of Compassion, which are designed to counteract the prevalent narrative of violence.
