No artist has inspired my creativity more than the late great Swiss surrealist industrial designer HR Giger. His work is instantly recognizable and consistently top notch throughout his brand. While most remember him for his design of the Xenomorph alien species from the Alien series the extent of his work on the project has continued to inspire and transcend media platforms over the last few decades. The design that stands out most to me besides some of his striking interiors is his “Space Jocky” that functions as a pilot for a space craft. This amazing design is so forward thinking that it is still used in the modern series to depict a race of futuristic “Engineers” or “Gods” through technology that has been merged with biology. The piece has been painted, sculpted and even converted into a video game environment which can be seen in the video above.
