Is Steampunk merely a fancy way of redressing existing fantasies? Is it a modern reaction to mankind’s inability to truly cope with the rapid advances is has inflicted upon itself? Is it a lifestyle choice for a culture wanting to live in a simpler time?
Steampunk: History Beyond Imagination will explore the origins, personalities, and lasting effects of an imaginative aesthetic, born in “The Age of Steam”, through a collection of artifacts, replicas and informational displays.
The exhibit will introduce visitors to an era in which science and industry were combined to launch mankind into the 20th Century (and beyond) – to become a world where ordinary human beings could do the impossible. Historical pioneers like Charles Babbage and prominent personalities like Nikola Tesla will also be revealed for their contributions to the development of incredible technological advances.
Further displays will delve into the fantastical worlds and concepts dreamed of in fiction (by the likes of H.G. Wells, Jules Verne, and May Wollstonecraft Shelley) and compare them to the wondrous realities created by inventors and scientists like Ada Lovelace, The Wright Brothers, and Thomas Edison.
Some of these galleries will not only enlighten visitors on the connections between science and imagination through artifacts, but will also allow visitors to explore questions about history in creative interactive exhibits.
Not only will Steampunk: History Beyond Imagination be a gallery of history-related items, but it will also be an artistic and educational romp through a unique manner of looking at the world around us!
