Ivaylo Getov is someone who loves using computers and algorithms to look at the world in a new way, which is what helped inspire him to create 'Electric Sheep.'

The design has been made into a print and video installation, featuring a cloud that is constantly changing based on the algorithm that Getov has put together. According to DesignBoom, the "custom code 'grows' each cloud from two inputs: the number of recursions and the shape of each 'droplet.'" Thus the design is in a continuous state of growth and change, with the computer keeping the installation on a loop so that the development never stops.

It's interesting to see technology and art intersect with this design by Ivaylo Getov, as well as appreciate the beauty of it all.
