I am not interested in how these machines work, or in learning how to built them or pick them apart. I’m not even into making steampunk craft, but I can not help but to be fascinated by the look of big machines – especially vintage ones in a museum like this. Machines where the details are adorned, the metal polished, the function unkown and the area of use a mystery…
To me they are eye candy. I hope you think so too.
Maybe you haven’t heard of steampunk yet? It is a sub-genre of science fiction that typically features steam-powered machinery but it also refers to any of the artistic styles, clothing fashions, or subcultures, that have developed from the aesthetics of steampunk fiction, Victorian-era fiction, art nouveau design, and films from the mid-20th century, according to Wikipedia! I don’t know too much more than that, but I know that steampunk fashion involves wearing googles!
What fascinates you?
