    this looks really good, really spacy,

  2. Interesting. So you are saying that Barbara Hepworth was the fore-runner to space, or to science fiction films?

  3. I mean that the people who design space ships for SF films were inspired by her. That Modernism still seemed modern when the first Star Wars was made in 1977. Funny that this futuristic stuff now looks dated, though I don’t think there’s been anything to replace it apart from the dystopian post-apocalyptic Mad Max vision, which is mostly just a disaster-stricken present.

    Real space ships look a mess.
