Starfields, rainbow-hued beziers, and flying toasters: the whimsical sights of screensavers are iconic, nostalgic, and increasingly obsolete. Historian-turned-developer Rachel Weil discusses how screensavers influenced her work, spurring a years-long obsession with putting screensavers where they don't belong. Weil will share some of her projects, including a Node.js-powered tool that allows anyone to build a custom screensaver for the 1980s Nintendo Entertainment System (NES) game console.
