Do Electric Sheep Graze on Electric Grass?
Do Electric Sheep Graze on Electric Grass? is a meditation on technology and the natural world. Where does the delineation between real and virtual end and how close to the uncanny can we get. Through the creation of virtual grass that covers a virtual world, with artificial wind blowing through it, where do you go.
