DID YOU KNOW?
The steampunk aesthetic harkens back to the late 1980s as a tongue-in-cheek variation of cyberpunk, coined by science fiction author K. W. Jeter, who wanted to use an original term to describe the style of the worlds he had created in Morlock Night and Infernal Devices. In its purest essence, steampunk is Victorian science fiction, the industrialized 19th century. Historically, this period saw the development of many key aspects of the modern world (mechanized manufacturing, extensive urbanization, telecommunications, office life, and mass-transit), and steampunk uses this existing technology and structure to imagine an even more advanced 19th century, often complete with Victorian-inspired wonders like steam-powered aircraft and mechanical computers. The style is evident in films like The City Of Lost Children by Jean-Pierre Jeunet, Hugo by Martin Scorsese, Brad Silberling's A Series Of Unfortunate Events and Hayao Miyazaki's anime masterpieces Howl’s Moving Castle and Laputa: Castle in the Sky. Recently the style was showcased in Mortal Engines, the 2018 post-apocalyptic adventure film that disastrously tanked commercially.
Three of the most recognizable design aspects of this science fiction subgenre are steam (obviously), gears and goggles. Steam engines are a vital aspect of life in a steampunk world. Steam more generally signifies a world in which steam technology is both dominant and prolific. The gear is not exactly unique to the genre. In steampunk, it joins related devices such as flywheels and pistons as the “power lines” of the steam age. Finally, goggles are frequently encountered in steampunk clothing and imagery. They are associated with both science and mechanized travel, both of which are common themes in steampunk. The genre has a longlasting appeal. Some people are drawn to it from a love of the Victorian period. Others enjoy steampunk’s unique approach to technology. Many people are drawn to it in light of its fashion aspects. Whatever the reason, steampunk is here to stay.
