Celebrate the Joy of . . . Life! 

The countdown officially begins today…

Anyone remember when I thought that Wonders might a little light or (even worse) boring as a Two Disc compilation??? Well, turns out I grossly underestimated the musical depth of this, the last of Future World’s sprawling pavilions. As a result, this singularity in Epcot history will come to you as an expansive collection featuring OVER TWO HOURS of specially arranged, constructed, enhanced and restored musical compilations!

Experience the Wonder!

E.P,C o T Texture Series -CommuniCarpet

When one thinks of richly detailed themed environments Epcot’s Future World is probably close to bottom of that list. With its large, featureless pavilions and streamlined interiors one might think of it as a world of basic forms with little texture. However, if one looks just a little closer you can see the future world is filled with wonderfully subdued surfaces with a richness of character all its own. With this in mind…

Welcome to the
EXPERIMENTAL PATTERNS, CARPETS OR TEXTILES SERIES!
or TEXTURES SERIES (for short:)

The series begins with one of the most famous custom carpets ever created for a theme park –
The CommuniCore Carpet!

Note on Color:
If you do a Google search of CommuniCore Carpet you’ll see two color variants (a Green, Red & Teal version and a Purple, Magenta & Black one). If you look at the dates you’ll notice the older the picture the darker the color and therefore more accurate. It's also my belief that considering Dark Purple (Plum?) was the identity color of the pavilion its more than likely that this was closer to the original state of floor covering that after 25 years of sun exposure faded into the lighter (teal) version seen in latter day photographs.
