The center image shows the Rothko Chapel in Houston, TX, designed by Mark Rothko in 1963-1967.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Rothko_ChapelTop and bottom images, of course, show interiors of the starship Enterprise, from Star Trek.
Ha! Where's the bishoprick's homophobic CD design? I thought it'd be the second pic after the ST 1960s design--in the original or the turquoise wash?! Everything can be reduced to its origins in 1960s ST design--from the Jewish artist dzined chapel in a museum to a homophobic bishop's techno-rantings' packaging to a little pale turquoise diaphragm-shaped candy with a tiny fortune scrolled up inside that I still have from last early spring or so...from the pudgy fingers of the complacently- wedded who hold the constrictures of heterosexism in place to the eye of a potential faux-celestial storm, everything boils down to its ST dzine elements!Was at Yiddish table with Judith and L. M. among many others yesterday, BTW.Love and Dreams to Reality!Stefalala
who made who, i wonder in this sense, Lloyd Wright´s architecture is previous to science fiction´s starships. i think calighari is behind all this stuff. nice to think!
Looks like the Enterprise under a different captain. Not as approachable, (but very beautiful, in a spine-bristling way).
STEF: Gotta give the archbp a rest. Is that turquoise candy for moi? : )ALEPH: Wright was earlier than the Enterprise, true, but starships have been in design since HG Wells, at least.But surely you're right--modern design begins with the generation of Caligari and Friends. I posted about Bauhaus and Star Trek design a while ago too.MRET: Hm. I wonder what that captain would be like. Someone cooler, more linear, more rational yet mystical, someone more like ... Spock?
