Entries in Spaceship Earth (9)
In honor of Epcot’s 30th Anniversary, E82 is proud to present a New Series for The Epcot Legacy (yes, another series:). “SSE Hues” pays tribute to the original lighting schemes of Spaceship Earth and suggests new color combinations for tomorrow.
The first several editions are directly based on designer Joe Falzetta’s original lighting schemes and should be released rather quickly so keep your “eye on the ball” for new Hues soon!
E82 is I am deeply impacted with the lost of Ray Bradbury today. Ray was the intersection of so many of my interests and endeavors. His prose to Science Fiction, his evolvement with the moralistic world of the Twilight Zone (of which I was an actual resident), his infectiously exuberant friendship with Walt Disney and ultimately his contributions to EPCOT Center are merely a small selection of his accomplishments.
Ray Bradbury was quite simply a beacon for the betterment of mankind. He saw our potential and through his writings worked toward bringing it to reality and we are ALL the better for his existence.

OK, I really hate it when I do this and fortunately it doesn’t happen that often. There’s nothing more annoying or unprofessional than releasing substandard product. USUALLY, when I create a new background I will sit on it for a few weeks (or years!) before I release it. This method allows me to make sure that the image works well as both a desktop and as a piece of standalone “art”. It also appears that most of you felt the same way as I did with the “City in the Stars” release and few weeks ago. To date, it’s my least downloaded desktop. It’s almost ironic (and embarrassing) that as I’m writing about changes made to the Imagination pavilion that I myself having to make changes to my own recent mistakes. I after a while I figured out why. In my zeal to launch E82, I momentary forgot what it was created for. E82 is about the EPCOT Legacy and not about E82 itself. So today I present my final concept. I think you’ll like this one much better!
Produced to celebrate the launch of the New E82, City in the Stars combines the three versions of the EPCOT concept. In the background, a Constellation of the Walt Disney’s original concept for the utopian City of EPCOT (realized in model form as Progress City) and reflected in face of E82, Spaceship Earth symbolizing both EPCOT Center, and the Epcot of today.
