Abstract
Electric Sheep is a distributed screen-saver that harnesses idle computers into a render farm with the purpose of animating and evolving artificial life-forms known as sheep. The votes of the users form the basis for the fitness function for a genetic algorithm on a space of abstract animations. Users also may design sheep by hand for inclusion in the gene pool.Dreams in High Fidelity is a new manifestation of the sheep. Physically it consists of a small computer driving a framed liquid crystal display. It plays sheep selected, edited, and sequenced by the artist at triple the resolution and more stately motion than the screensaver. Sales of this fine art will support the free network, forming a symbiotic relationship.
