Electric Sheep at Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA)

Electric Sheep Generation 244 will be on display at the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA) from July 2011 through January 2012!


The show, “Expanded Abstraction” includes 6 different ambient animated visual works, presented by the Center for Visual Music, a nonprofit film archive dedicated to visual music, experimental animation and avant-garde media.


Here are a couple of stills from my animation work in Generation 244:

I’ve been working with Electric Sheep for many years as a fractal designer, and also I designed their Sheep Logo. This short Documentary Video has a great interview with Electric Sheep creator Scott Draves, and includes a few samples from the collection as well.

Congrats to shepherds Scott Draves, Chris Ursitti, Coppercat, and everyone involved with Electric Sheep!
