Steampunk: where history and the future collide

4 Sep 2013
Description

Steampunk is a burgeoning subculture. Part Victorian gothic, part sci-fi fantasy, it’s growing in popularity and ambition. At first glance, Steampunk represents an alternative technological vision of the future—one powered by steam rather than modern forms of energy.

But at its heart, it’s not really about technology at all, it’s a playful challenge to our perceptions of modernity—from fashion to music to art to literature.
