Syd Mead has been predicting the future since the 1960s when the Art Center grad completed his first dramatic paintings of hovercraft and snow-walkers for U.S. Steel. Since then he has created conceptual designs for theme parks, video games, and films. He lives in Pasadena, a short hike from his alma mater.
