This piece is part man, part machine, a literal interpretation of the real “machine” which Pink Floyd referred to as the music industry. The concept was borrowed from the marketing materials used for the album this song appears on, Wish You Were Here. It was one of the more elaborate packages to accompany a Pink Floyd album at the time. The four colors were taken from the elements sticker on the cover’s outer plastic bag which also contained what looks like robot hands shaking. And the human figure itself is taken from the figure on the back cover. The flames, shown in blue in the top right, are a reference to the actual Wish You Were Here album cover.
