‘The future, according to Syd Mead, is just “reality ahead of schedule.”

Mead, who worked briefly as a designer at Ford in the very early 1960s, has become famous around the world as the “visual futurist” whose projects include the design of vehicles for science fiction movies such as Blade Runner, Star Trek, Aliens and Tron.

Progressions, a show of 50 of Mead’s illustrations (those shown here provided by CarArt.us), opens August 18 and runs through October 18 at the Rebecca Randall Bryan Art Gallery in Conway, S.C.
