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.
David Adey, artist
You won’t find a paywall here. Come as often as you like — we’re not counting. You’ve found a like-minded tribe that cherishes what a free press stands for. If you can spend another couple of minutes making a pledge of as little as $5, you’ll feel like a superhero defending democracy for less than the cost of a month of Netflix.
