The Village Machine

As the 2003 Artist in Residence at the Pasadena City College in Pasadena, California, Syd Mead mounted a one-man exhibition and produced this art piece specifically for that show which was then bestowed to PCC and now hangs in the Shatford Library on campus. This illustration depicts the first launch of an elaborate construction called the "Village Machine". It was designed to carry several dozen passengers to isolated global locals for remote adventures with all the creature comforts of a world-class, six- star resort. The scene is the polar underground fabrication facility just as the launch aperture is opened and the finished machine with its complement of adventurous passengers, lifts off, bound for an exotic destination with the passengers and entire crew safely strapped into acceleration couches in the uppermost unit.
