I believe that Steampunk is more than just brass and watchparts. It's finding a way to combine the past and the future in an aesthetic pleasing yet still punkish way. It's living a life that looks old-fashioned, yet speaks to the future. It's taking the detritus of our modern technological society and remaking it into useful things. Join me as I search for items for my house that combine the scientific romanticism of the Victorians with our real present and imagined future.

A very surreal music video ("Motus" by Seb Martel) that takes place in a steampunkesqe bookshelf found by The Practical Archivist.
Delightfully cluttered, full of wonderful things, no?
Very fluxus-oriented. If you don't know fluxus, you should. I think.
