Amy Globus: electric sheep

ShowingNovember 22, 2001 - January 5, 2002

Amy Globus’ work mixes found and staged film footage with an array of sound to create futuristic fantasy. electric sheep focuses on a primitive and alluring creature — the octopus — as it performs seemingly impossible feats by compressing its body to squeeze through tight, tubular, transparent spaces. While the depiction of this ocean creature is natural, it seems more suited to the world of science fiction. The dominant sound element is Emmylou Harris’s 1995 version of Neil Young’s song Wrecking Ball.
