Amy Globus’s first major work, and perhaps her most infamous, was a project titled electric sheep (2001-02) that was inspired by having watched documentaries about the animals. The work and and its sequel electronic sheep (2004), titled after Philip K. Dick’s 1968 novel Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?, are audio-visual experiences that depict octopi shot from different angles as they move around several tanks and through narrow glass tubes. The creatures proceed in rhythm to a woozily manipulated music track that melds with the flesh and movements of the octopuses.These and her other works address themes of mortality, sensuality, loneliness, and grotesque beauty.
