    • And the image is, indeed, quite decent. Something about these forms and materials make me think of the large, good-hearted space aliens in the movie, “The Fifth Element,” which was, “[d]irected by Luc Besson. With Bruce Willis, Milla Jovovich, Gary Oldman,” according to IMDB. The movie remains quite a little trip, 16 years later. I get a similar emotional tug from your images as from the film. A sense of displacement, possibly replacement by metal. Damned good-looking metal. But who needs flesh, when you’ve got this titanium all around you?

      Funny thing … I don’t think the creatures were metallic. I wonder why I am reminded of them.

  1. Opening line of NEUROMANCER. One of the great opening lines of all time.

    When I play with some of these images there’s definitely a science fiction thing at work, but rather than alien I tend to view it more in terms of METROPOLIS. Visions of the future, etc.
