OK... here goes.. a piece of Cool european artyfarty trivia:
"The State of Sabotage is manifested in a unique sculpture that serves as a monument to artistic vision, territorial free spaces and independencies.
Sabotage mastermind Robert Jelinek invited the Swiss visionary and artist H.R. Giger to design the sculpture. H.R. Giger's sculpture model consists of a pair of shoes cast in an iron/copper form and welded to a metal base. The sculpture will be installed at the highest point of Harakka Island. Visitors to the island can step into the shoes and, by wearing them, comprehend the island as space and merge with the ground. The unveiling of the sculpture will be accompanied by a musical live act by Philipp Quehenberger. The sculpture will remain forever on Harakka Island. "

Giger got some fame back in 1979 when the movie Alien was released. -But you guys probably know that already.

I thought Giger was famous long before Alien, for designing the cover of Brain Salad Surgery!

Well.. not quite.. make a little list of "great HR Giger moments before 1979" and most people will go "HUH"?

Who knows about "Brain Salad Surgery" these days?

He has some fame with his skateboard designs these days! Had a discussion with a young guy next door a few days ago.. he went like "ahh, that dude with those cool skateboard designs!" The same guy is pretty convinced Tangerine Dream is a collective of drag artists.
