A staff member of the Museum HR Giger told AP that the artist H.R. Giger has died. Born in 1940, Giger was a pioneer in creating an imaginative macabre world. His most notable work appears in “Alien” and “Dune” sci-fi film classics that catapulted his status into stardom. In his museum and bar at Gruyeres, Switzerland, Giger’s oeuvre is in full display, from a biomorphic vaulted ceiling to Harkonnen chairs to intricately designed flooring patterns.
