"Why Steampunk? And Why Now?"
"Instead of curlicues and scroll work over metal to conceal the inner workings of things, Steampunk delivers the opposite effect. In short, it is a full blown design exfoliation. But why now? Has modern minimalism which is so downright drab and featureless run it's course?"
"Perhaps the answer lies in a restlessness and a desire for a messy vitality which allows the imagination to soar."
