Alien : Evolution of the Space Jockey via
Stanley Kubrick's 2001

leading from

In an interview with FX magazine, Giger gives the concept of the black monolith from Stanley Kubrick's 2001 A Space Odyssey as a source of inspiration for the space jockey's seat.

  1.  H R Giger : As for the chair in which he sits, I thought it had to be mechanical but not with normal arms and legs that could be moved with the feet or the hands. I liked very much the stone tablet in 2001 Space Odyssey, because it seemed to have some interior-like computer. So I thought that the outside could be very normal-looking and the whole machinery could go inside.
