Giger City

I visited Drune: Giger City today, my first 2022 outing, and such a relief to have a non-Christmas-themed destination to visit! This time, Hera is paying fully acknowledged homage to H R Giger. However, the first thing I noticed, on the landing platform, was this wonderful homage (deliberate or not) to Jim Burns, whose organic, insect-like ships fit right in with the feel of Giger City…

… being a homage to Giger’s work, the main themes here are teeth…

… penises…

… and vaginal orifices, often with penises. I’ve said before, I often find the juvenile sexual obsessions in Drune to be gratuitous. However, when you are doing a homage to the steaming, sexually obsessed work of H R Giger, it’s fairly hard to be gratuitous. And, although the human and I find obsession with sexual themes pretty infantile, now, we certainly didn’t, 40-odd years ago, when we first discovered Giger!…

… also, being a Giger homage, most things are green/green-blue, and slimey-looking…

… although all the penises and stuff get old pretty quick, this is still a magnificent reproduction of Giger-like themes…

… and I could just roll around in the marvellous textures!…

… of course, no Giger homage would be complete without a slime-dripping…

… chamber of face-hugger eggs (:
