But why is steampunk becoming so popular?
These are some of the main values promoted by steampunk: mystery, adventure, beauty, uniqueness, environmentalism, intellectualism, and moxie. It's no wonder steampunk is increasingly popular. It's not all goggles and gadgets. As anyone in the steampunk movement can tell you, there is a reason behind all those cogs. Steampunk says something important about how we feel about our world. Maybe re-envisioning the past or creating a new vision of the future sheds light on today's social problems. All art teaches us about life.
