You know Roger Woods and Klockwerks, right? He was steampunk before steampunk even was... Here's a great video his assistant Bryan Belanger made of Roger making one of his klocks on wheels. (I *love* the soundtrack.)
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.
I met Roger last month at the Philadelphia Steampunk show. He was set up across from where I was selling Steampunk lighting. I loved Roger's clocks and since I make similar lamps I call Diabolical Boxes Roger and I got along famously. I show my lamps at steampunklighting.com
