Whilst it has existed for years, Steampunk has really on come to light to the ‘public’ majority over the last few years.

Steampunk has really taken off within the art community, in all aspects. These include such areas as drawings and painting, photography, fasion and clothing- and most obviously metal work and 3d sculpturing. So much so that in oxford their was a museum/exhibition set up to honour it, some of the items on display are amazing.

There is a small documentary video of the exhibition linked below.

Weta Workshop made a silly competition to design your own SteamPunk Ray Gun to celebrate the release of their own collection.

An amazing advertisement for them can be seen here:

I really love this advert, and I think that it just summirises the silly sci-fi aspect of Steampunk completely.

The Clockwork Quartet are a British Steampunk band from London, an intricate blend of on stage theatre and music.

Each of their songs tells a tale of one of the ‘characters’ in the band, with strong clockwork overtones in the metronome and orchestral values.

Some examples can be found on YouTube, but can also be downloaded for FREE from their website – The Clockwork Quartet
