Steampunk - Retrofuturistic Hybrid Art
Where does Steampunk come from? The artistic movement breaks boundaries and provides a contemporary perspective on the science-fiction of the past. Steampunk started out as a literary genre named after the cyberpunk created by author K. W. J.

JOANIE CHARRON s'adresse directement au public de l'émission. Elle est debout au micro. Ses propos sont parfois accompagnés d'images illustrant la culture steampunk.
Aujourd'hui, je vous amène
ailleurs, mais à la fois
pas si loin de nous
grâce au steampunk. Et là,
peut-être que vous vous dites:
Le quoi? Le steampunk et c'est
vraiment fascinant puisqu'on
en parle de plus en plus dans la
blogosphère et les
Le steampunk, c'est vraiment
une culture que j'aime bien
qualifier de rétrofuturiste.
C'est un sous-genre de
science-fiction qui est né au
sein de la littérature. Et
d'ailleurs, le terme est
né grâce à la plume de plusieurs
auteurs, notamment celle de Paul
Di Filippo, dont la trilogie
steampunk se déroulait à l'ère
victorienne dans un 19e siècle
avancé que la réalité.
L'auteur s'inspirait de machines
futuristes et des romans
de Jules Verne et depuis, il y a
plusieurs auteurs qui ont
contribué à ce genre qui a
connu du succès au cinéma.
Le terme steampunk existe
officiellement depuis 1987, mais
on se réfère à des oeuvres des
années 50 et 60. D'ailleurs,
la plupart des oeuvres steampunk
présente une version repensée de
ces oeuvres, de ces périodes
historiques où la technologie à
vapeur est monnaie courante.
Aujourd'hui, ce mouvement
artistique connaît du
rayonnement bien au-delà de la
littérature. On peut facilement
trouver l'influence du steampunk
à travers les arts visuels, la
musique, la mode, les jeux vidéo
et bien plus. Certains disent
même que c'est une philosophie
de vie. Le steampunk est à la
fois un genre artistique et
un style esthétique. Encore
aujourd'hui, ce mouvement est
très en vogue. Les steampunk se
retrouvent à l'avant-garde de la
mode. Les plus enthousiastes,
par exemple, peuvent agencer
leurs vêtements en pastiche
hétéroclite de style victorien.
Ils trafiquent leur montre,
recouvre leur portable ou
téléphone cellulaire de cuivre,
par exemple, et ils peuvent
donner à leur salon des airs de
locomotive, jusqu'à une salle
de machine de paquebot.
Le steampunk, c'est en quelque
sorte la science-fiction d'hier
vue avec un regard actuel. C'est
un courant intellectuel qui
est définitivement en pleine
Et vous, ça vous inspire
quoi le steampunk?
