Show opening 5/13 and other news

Here's our latest newsletter (sign up with the form on the left).

Dear Friends,

Lots going on these days. First, mark your calendars. My solo show at the Devotion Gallery in Williamsburg Brooklyn is opening Friday May 13th with a reception 7-9pm. For more details, see This show will feature ready-to-hang software art, previews of our mobile apps, and works from outside the Electric Sheep. Hope to see you there!

We've been busy working on a commission for the Adler Planetarium in Chicago which will premiere July 6th. It consists of an installation in the entrance hall as well as projections in the dome at the highest resolution we've ever rendered.

Other fun news? Last year, Google projected my art in the MoMA atrium at their New York holiday party (see below). I did a collaboration with a jazz-rock pianist at the Chelsea Art Museum (watch the video). This spring, we had 144 T-shirts made with an all-over Electric Sheep print, emailed the user list, and all but sold out overnight.

Two weeks ago I was thrilled to discover that Paul Simon's new album cover features an image made with the Flame algorithm, which I invented and open sourced in 1992. Stephen Hawking's most recent book "The Grand Design" also featured a Flame on its cover. The decision to freely distribute the algorithm has done much to increase the spread of my art.

The group that my wife Isabel and I started in 2009, Leaders in Software and Art, is still going strong. Every month we invite four artists to present to an audience of artists, curators, gallerists, and collectors. Learn more at

Best, -Spot
