H R Giger’s Tarot Deck from Hell

By skepticlawyer

… Well, not quite, although the detail that his mother sometimes asks him to tone his art down is interesting. The background music is rather irritating, but the rest is distinctly worthwhile.

    I would prefer to play dice with Julius, than have a Tarot session with Giger. Some of the imagery is distinctly phallic (eg @4.45), and the bar in Star Wars seems tame by comparison. It’s interesting that artistic perceptions of alien life forms are always distinctly humanoid, but I suppose a mass of protoplasmic jelly might not have much artistic appeal.

    He’s really one of those artists that illustrates how the Art World’s lost its way. They won’t even consider him. Hockney they dismiss. But let Damien Hirst put something dead in a tank and Wow! Man!

    Jay-sus.

    If I was Giger I wouldn’t be showing shit to my mother.

    I love music like that. For some reason it cheers me up. I could lie in my coffin and listen to music like that all night long.
