Dreaming of Electric Sheep
Dreaming of Electric Sheep

Listen
AIR DATE: January 27, 2012

Do androids dream of electric sheep?  Maybe not... but David Adey certainly has fun creating his own electric sheep!  The artist has built a flock of ceramic sheep, each wearing a pink neon halo and powered by industrial cables.  They're all identical clones, and they look in the same direction - much like a "flock" of Facebook users "like" things all in unison.  So... are we all sheep?  Does the Internet control us? 

We talk to Adey about what inspires his work, what it says about Las Vegas, and why he's so obsessed with sheep.  Artist David Adey's new exhibit, "Flock," shows at UNLV's Donna Beam Fine Art Gallery from Jan. 19-Feb. 25, 2012.
