Dr Lila Moore is an artist film-maker, screen choreographer, networked performance practitioner, and theorist. She holds a PhD degree from Middlesex University in Dance on Screen (2001) and an MA in Independent Film and Video from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London. Dr Moore is an Advance Research Associate at the I-Node of Planetary Collegium, Plymouth University. She devises The Cybernetic Institute, a planetary platform for the exploration of technoetic arts and consciousness with an emphasis on the spiritual in art. The platform’s purpose is to supply educational courses utilising ritualistic, cybernetic, syncretic and networked principles both online and offline. The courses are metaphorically embedded in “morphic fields of compassion,” which could be activated by art and ritual, and are designed to counteract the prevalent narrative of violence.
