Hans Rüdi Giger № 39
Basilo Schmid, nicknamed Pascha, an old friend from Chur, persuades H.R.G. to give up his nine-to-five job with Andreas Christen in order to devote more time to art. H.R.G. works in the Tessin, again, for a few weeks. F. M. Murer commissions him to produce props for the planned 30-minutes film Swissmade. He now attempts the difficult task of creating a shell of polyester vinyl for a dog and for the "monster". This is his first extraterrestrial being, and it has a built-in image and sound recorder in its head and chest. Tina Gwerder plays the superstar wearing this costume. Paul Waibels's dog wears its own tailor-made casing.
