Steampunk

Churchtank Type 7C by Kris Kuksi

On another day in Oxford, we went to look at the Steampunk exhibition at the Museum of the History of Science. It was rather cool. We saw fascinating and sometimes disturbing examples of Steampunk art. All the exhibits were 3D objects made by various artists working in the Steampunk genre from various parts of the world including the UK, the USA and Japan. I don’t know why I took a photo of this piece in particular. It wasn’t really my favourite- maybe it just appealed because of the interesting use of a model church. I like the fact that there’s lots of detail on the sculpture and you have to look closely to see it all.  I don’t know if it’s a really good example of  what might spring to mind when one thinks of Steampunk, though. Not enough brass or clockwork bits and maybe no steam either, although this is hard to say. It could be a steam-powered Churchtank and, anyway, I don’t think steam is actually compulsory.
