PBS Arts ongoing web documentary series latest episode, Off Book | Steampunk, delves into the world of the Steampunk movement.
Steampunk art evokes an alternate reality where steam is the primary source of power. Technology, though highly advanced, has taken on a very different look and feel, and fashion is heavily influenced by Victorian styles. In this episode, we explore the Steampunk aesthetic and art movement. We speak with a Steampunk artist, a composer who created an entire piece of music inspired by Steampunk, and a performing arts collective whose work falls naturally into this intriguing world.
The Steampunk Treehouse at the 2007 Burning Man Festival is one of the 7 Great Things That Are Better Steampunk’d listed at the end of the video.
