pop Quizz

What is the link between Moebius, Giger, Christopher Ross, Jodorowsky, pink Floyd and.. Salvator Dali?

they've all got involved in a project movie in the 70's ...
the adaption of Franck Herbert's DUNE

-----> check the story here <--------

Yup, yup. Giger actually became friends with Dali during his involvement with Dune (check out Necronomicon for more on that, as well as Retrospective).

Btw, Pascal, those scans are uber-saturated; they don't really do the work justice. Originally they were of the classic Giger ghostly bluish hue.

Oh, and currently Moebius is working on Rendezvous with Rama, a film directed by David Fincher/A.K. Walker, based on the novel written by Arthur C. Clarke, and completely CG.

you can still have a look on gigers original art for the dune project here in switzerland. most famous are the chairs of the harkonnen castle. They're even commercial distributed and you can have a seat on them in one of the 2 giger bars (NY and Chur,Switzerland)

He's one of the few creative swiss connections to the world of movies.

yeah, gigers stile would have perfectly fit the house of harkonnen.

But I have my doubts that giger would have made a great worm-design...

Other question: Isn't Jean "Moebius" Giraud anymore working on a project "through the moebius strip"?
