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.

Is it obscene to cut up a book to turn it into a work of art? What if the art reflected and expanded on the meaning of the book?
Just a small sample of Brian Dettmer's Book Autopsies.
More examples at the galleries that represent him: Packer Schopf Gallery, MiTO, and Toomey Tourell.
More coverage at Centripetal Notion. Found via Coilhouse.
