Do Dinosaurs Dream of Electric Sheep?

The Covey Center for the Arts is pleased to announce its newest art exhibit, Do Dinosaurs Dream of Electric Sheep? Sculptor Tim Little and flame fractal artist Carolyn Nicita have invoked creatures that live and dream, and from the most unlikely of materials. Tim Little makes creatures out of metal from a junk pile. Carolyn Nicita makes creatures out of the math of chaos.

Under Tim's magical welding torch, a discarded piston becomes a horse hoof. Motorcycle tanks become a rhinoceros. Bicycle chains, transmission gears, crane shafts and steel cable become bulls, trees, horses, dinosaurs-- and dragons. The sculptures become so alive that you find yourself wondering where they will strike next. Carolyn conjures IFS flame fractals, known as Electric Sheep. The hallucinations in her work are built with fractal equations, the blueprints of snowflakes and hurricanes, ferns and nautilus shells. She renders them using chaos theory, better known as the math of the Butterfly Effect.

You can also call the box office at 801.852.7007 or visit their website, www.coveycenter.org for more information. The exhibit will be shown from February 3- March 29. An opening reception will be held on Friday February 3, 2012 from 6 – 9 p.m.
