This is the digital version of psychedelic visuals.
With Electric Sheep, Scott Draves, a Google engineer, made an attempt to reproduce the essence of life in digital form. He created an open-source visual arts program with a genetic language that evolves. When the Electric Sheep program is installed, the images appear when the computer is in sleep mode, thus representing that computer’s dreams. Users are invited to open up the genetic code of each morphing abstract animation known as a “sheep”, alter it, and re-enter it into the gene pool by posting it back to the server. Then those new creations can “mate” with others making an all new “sheep”, so humans and computers are working together to create something greater than either one.
