VISTA Series - A Tribute in Light

From Looking back at Tomorrow to the exciting possibilities of life on a fertile desert, floating city or space colony, Horizons presented THE most optimistic and forward-thinking display in the history of themed entertainment. Before the debut of its serialized Vista, we pause to pay tribute the greatest and most important of all deceased attractions.

Designer’s Note: Because of its historical complexity, the treatment of Horizons was always intended to be different from the other pavilions of Future World. Inspired by the shuttle mission plaques found at the exit of the Shuttle Launch Experience at the Kennedy Space Center, this edition is the only “gold” Pavilion it the otherwise “White Hot” pavilion line-up signifying its loss.
This special edition was designed (almost) simultaneously as the “standard” edition so it was tricky to restrain myself on some design choices in order to preserve its inherently somber tone.

So make sure to add JLH Omnimedia to your favorites or better yet add the RSS feed to receive project reports, design notes, and sneak peeks on all upcoming E82 events.

The State of E82

Here it is - The third Anniversary of The E82 Project! After a much needed (and unscheduled) break during the holiday season, E82 is back with a New Look, a much improved banner, and a new column, JLH Omnimedia is to be my personal blog, with insights on multiple topics and the home of all Behind the Scenes information (and sneak peeks on upcoming projects).
Click on the Image below to read just what’s planned for 2012.

JLH Omnimedia is also its own separate entity with its own RSS News Feed.
Additionally, updates will typically not be featured on the E82 News page.

 

Personal Note/Reality Check:
Just a day ago, I received a rather disturbing comment in essence stating that E82 was now part of a long list of dead projects. Please keep in mind that I am just one man with a singular vision for the future of E82. I also have a Full-Time Job, attend College Full-Time (at Full Sail University) and have family obligations that often take precedence over this unfunded personal project. 2011 was a very difficult year for me, pushing tolerance limits on all levels. It’s amazing that E82 was able to progress at all. So please keep that in mind whenever I disappear for any length of time, I WILL BE BACK, and will continue releasing albums, expositions, artwork and insight until this project is done. By my calculations we still have a Very Long journey ahead and many more Worlds to explore.

At E82...
