NUMBER SE7EN: Giant steampunk puppet hits Fringe

More than two tonnes of mechanized madness from steampunk heaven will come trundling through the city to mark the opening of Fringe World this year.

Recycled from old mining machinery and described as Mad Max-meets-Jules Verne, the moving Mechronos “performance machine” is created by Spare Parts Puppet Theater and inspired by Leonardo da Vinci’s flying machine designs.

NUMBER S6X: Steampunk Meets Cuisine at Chef David Rotter’s Boulton & Watt

A(n industrial) revolution has hit Alphabet City: the team behind Ella and the Blind Barber bring revolutionary dishes to the table at Boulton & Watt. “Like our namesake, we’re refining and re-creating an already much loved product,” said former 983 and Norwood chef David Rotter. “It’s a revised take on rustic American comfort food, rich and hearty and satisfying during the cold months.”

NUMBER 5IVE: Rococopunk is not only sillier than Steampunk, it’s also more punk

Where has Rococopunk been all my life? This obstinately silly new trend imagines a world where “the Rococo period never ended, and it had a lovechild with Sid Vicious,” according to WonderHowTo’s Austin Sirkin. The face makeup looks like something out of Liquid Sky and the costumes have a wonderfully decadent palette. Nobody is ever going to say that Rococopunk has anything to do with goths discovering the color brown.

Well, if you like your Batman from the Victorian era, check out this Steampunk Batman gun.

NUMBER 2WO: In home design, steampunk style picks up steam

For anyone looking to revamp a tired living space in the new year, just add a little steam.

While the steampunk look, a marriage of Victorian aesthetics and science fiction, has been popular in everything from literature and music to clothing and films, it’s finally creeping into home décor thanks to artists and designers right here in Austin. It’s a quirky design aesthetic, bordering on the avant-garde, with a focus creativity, imagination and a healthy element of do-it-yourself.

NUMBER 1NE: Steampunk artist creates the future by using the past

The basement of Maury Dickson’s Woodstock home is his workshop. There, he turns antique gears, old eyeglasses and other bits of Victorian-era bric-a-brac into jewelry, clocks, lamps and other pieces of art that seem like they belong in a futuristic vision of the past.

He’s been at it about three years now, taking up the art form known as steampunk when he was recuperating from a near-death experience with Guillain-Barre, a disease that temporarily paralyzed him, put him in a wheelchair for a year, and still leaves its painful mark on his body.
