intrigue

16 October, 2008 at 11:05 pm (art, work) (, , , )

I’m fond of the steampunk genre because, as a tinkering-type person, being able to see guts, seeing what leads where and what turns which bit, keeps my attention.  When the workings are visible I find myself automatically trying to figure out if I could make them do something else, or if I could make something else perform the same task.

Also, as a visual person, I love that antique innards are often etched, decorated with trim, and might include a graceful signature.  That someone wanted to spend time on aesthetics after perfecting the function makes it even more wonderful.
