Raygun Gothic Rocketship

Pier 14, Embarcadero
San Francisco, California
September 11, 2010

The Raygun Gothic Rocketship is a rococo retro-futurist future-rustic vernacular between yesterday’s tomorrow and the future that never was, a critical kitsch somewhere between The Moons of Mongo & Manga Nouveau. Inspired by 1930s and 40s science fiction, the 40-foot tall, 8-ton rocket ship was a fabulous attraction displayed San Francisco for several years. In 2013 it was relocated to Calgary, Alberta Canada. I wonder where it is today?

(Actually an old favorite that I re-processed for better quality)
