VISTA SERIES – Growing Light

Rising from the earth, the futuristic greenhouse of The Land is encircled by growing light beams glowing in grass green and sun yellow signifying the symbiosis created by photosynthesis.

Designer’s Note: Creating these backgrounds is sometimes done in silence but more often is accompanied by music. In almost every case, the music played has nothing to do with the subject matter, but in this case I realized just how much The Land looks like the Devil’s Tower featured in Close Encounters while listening to its score. The film came out 1977 and The Land was designed shortly after its release so one can help but wonder if the film’s climatic location served as the direct inspiration for the pavilion. What Do You Think?

Thanks for all your efforts. I really appreciate them. I've been meaning to switch out my older EPCOT-themed wallpapers for some new ones. I also appreciate your work in reviving the pavilion music as well (not to mention the TRON 2.0 soundtrack).
