About Idle Time Software

Idle Time Software was founded in 2004 by Cathy Davies, an internationally exhibited artist specializing in information technology and multimedia installations.

She was experimenting with the idea of screensavers as an unexplored, cinematic medium, "and I thought they could be a lot more interesting than some fish moving around. They are a little movie that plays again and again when your workstation isn't working for you - why not put something really thoughtful, even personal there? After all, your computer toils all day for you, why not let it dream once in a while?" For her first release, Holding Pattern 1.0, Davies wanted to work with a subject matter that was cinematic and beautiful, "but also common and meaningful to many people." She landed on the idea of a commercial airplane flight and HP 1.0 was a runway success, outgrowing servers with over 350,000 downloads and prompting the formation of Idle Time Software.

Davies is working with photographers to develop several new cinematic screensavers including the forthcoming Cubicle Flood, in which a standard office setting slowly fills to the ceiling with water over an eight hour period of time. Cubicle Flood and all future releases will be available in free as well as premium versions.
