Steampunk Art & Design: The Philosophy, Process and Pictures
What is Steampunk? Steampunk art and design uses the core principles of both STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, ART and Math) and Victorian-era industrial style to reimagine, make, create (recreate), and infuse a vision of the Future and answers the question: "What would the past look like if the future had happened sooner?"
In this one hour presentation, Bruce Rosenbaum, who the Wall Street Journal dubbed "The Guru of Steampunk" will bring you through his inspirations and his own work to show you how he is able to create virtual time machines by fusing the past with the present and future.
