Electric Sheep

Electric Sheep is a collaborative abstract artwork founded by Scott Draves. The thousands of computers it runs on work together as a supercomputer to render the animations (each frame takes about an hour). Everyone watching can influence what everyone sees by voting, and the more popular sheep mate with each other and reproduce according to a genetic algorithm, hence the flock evolves to satisfy human desire. You can also design your own sheep and upload them into the gene pool.

You can buy high-quality limited edition artworks made with the Electric Sheep, as well as Blu-Rays, DVDs and T-shirts, from ScottDraves.com. Proceeds from these sales keep the network free to the public.

Programmed by an Open Source team from all over the world.
