The Antipodean Steampunk Show @ Tasma Terrace @ Friday, July 18, 2014
Last Friday we went to the 'Antipodean Steampunk Show' near parliament. Steampunk is an idea not a time period, though I always thought it was like an alternative lifestyle or something e.g. vegan goodwill loving hipsters.
"Contemporary technology and Victorian styling collide in spectacular fashion at The Antipodean Steampunk Show. If today’s technology had been introduced in the 19th century, what would the world look like? The Antipodean Steampunk Show attempts to answer this question in a fascinating mash-up of past, future and fantasy.
Born in literature in the 1980s as a response to the sci-fi ‘Cyberpunk’ genre, the visual richness of Steampunk work soon transcended the page.
The artists contributing to the exhibition come from a range of cross-discipline backgrounds including engineer-sculptors, artist-scientists, shoe-makers, jeweller-taxidermists, writers, performers, photographers, film-makers, tinkerers, designers and hobbyists." - Link

Something hilarious which I wasn't sure to write about or not, but we decided just not to include examples. There is a peep show machine that you wined (pictures are bad quality and b/w or diagrams btw) with erotic. Not sure if it's an incoherent story, or just random bit of text. But parts of it are written like it would have been in the Victorian era, less words they use in porn and more well other words. XD
Tickets start from $5 (member) or $10 for an adult. The show runs till 8th August 2014.
