Todays “Steampunk” cultural aesthetic draws from the parallel social angst of early industrializing 19th Century’s ‘awe struck’ impact of the overwhelming power of stream-driven technologies, and 21st Century overwhelming digital-internet revolution impacting us today. Steampunk’s sensibilities are constantly evolving, with adaptations through all the arts.
On display and for sale are Valley artist’s fantastical props, sculpture, and paintings, juxtaposing histories and playfully reconfigured technologies. Initially inspired by Victorian science fiction authors H. G. Wells and Jules Verne who was influenced by Edgar Allan Poe, “Steampunk” was coined in 1980’s by author K. W. Jeter in describing contemporary stories set in the Victorian period, blending alternative history and science fiction.
