"Electric Sheep is a free, open source screen saver run by thousands of people all over the world. It can be installed on any ordinary PC or Mac. When these computers "sleep", the screen saver comes on and the computers communicate with each other by the internet to share the work of creating morphing abstract animations known as "sheep". The result is a collective "android dream", an homage to Philip K. Dick's novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep."

A high-definition, big-screen version of the project, "Dreams in High Fidelity," will be shown in the art gallery at Siggraph, a computer graphics and interactive techniques conference that starts Sunday in Boston."
