Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?

Completed: 2019

Vicky Bilbily’s ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep? Bell Box displays the glass-covered interior of a robot’s brain and forehead, presumably asleep. The robot’s large eyes are open, looking to the left of the viewer, but their brain – a light blue semicircle circle – is filled with ten sheep connected to each other with a dark blue lines. The robot’s brain is connected to their body with light blue lines, reminiscent of a circuit board.

The title ‘Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?’ is the original title of the renamed 1968 novel Blade Runner (fully titled Blade Runner: Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?) by Philip K. Dick, a dystopian science fiction novel that the artist harkens back to in this piece.
