Lila Moore, PhD
Lila Moore, PhD is a lecturer, theorist, film-maker and mixed reality artist with expertise in the fields of screen-dance and Technoetic Arts.
She formulated a theory of Cybernetic Futures, published in her article: The Shaman of Cybernetic Futures: Art, Ritual and Transcendence in Fields of the Networked Mind, as part of her post-doctorate at the Planetary Collegium of Plymouth University.
The concept involves digital learning environments based on holistic principles and second-order cybernetics. Lila has been practising this notion in her online teaching and creative activities to encourage compassionate learning context, trigger communitas and innovation amongst learners, and counteract the narrative of violence.
Lila holds a practice-based PhD from Middlesex University (2001) in the interdisciplinary context of Screen Dance, experimental film, modern art, performance, myth, ritual and expressive therapies. She also holds an MA degree in Independent Film and Video and MPhil from Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design, London, and a B.Ed. degree in Fine Art & Art History.
Lila lectures and writes on the arts, film, and new media in the context of modern and contemporary spiritualities, mysticism, gender, cultural theories, and technoetics. She is a lecturer and thesis supervisor for the Alef Trust MSc Programme in Consciousness, Spirituality and Transpersonal Psychology, and leading the option course: Psyche, Cosmos and the Imaginal. Additionally, she is a lecturer at the Department for the Study of Mysticism and Spirituality at Zefat Academic College.
Lila articulates her exploration of consciousness in her films, writings, mixed reality and digital artworks, e.g., Techno-Spiritual Horizons. She regularly participates in juried exhibitions, academic conferences, and her articles were published in academic journals. Lila Moore’s digital artworks and theoretical writings are archived by ACM SIGGRAPH and ADA – Archive of Digital Art.
