AIDOL (Game Loading Screen) is derived from Lawrence Lek’s CGI musical feature film AIDOL (2019). Set in the year 2065, the film revolves around Diva, a former superstar who enlists an AI to ghostwrite her comeback performance for the eSports Supershoot Olympics. The film was shown at numerous exhibitions and film festivals and the soundtrack was released on Hyperdub records in 2020. The film features a musical video game in which the player assumes the role of Diva, the superstar singer herself; this artwork is a special widescreen edition of the loading screen.
