Steam Punk Weekend!

Steampunk Exhibition of Art and Design

I went to a show in the Hamptons this weekend that completely blew my mind! Titled "Steam Punk" the show features a number of artists working around a similar concept of fusing a sort of Victorian elegance with modern machinery and a little bit (or a big bit) of the bizarre. That said, go see it if you can, it's one of the best shows I have seen. If you can't go see it, check out the following links to see some of my favorite artists, and go here to see Irene Gallo's write-up about it on Tor.com.

Sam Van Olffen . . . awesome!

Eric Freitas...freaking AMAZING working clocks!
Art Donovan...some of the coolest light/art pieces I've seen!

Look and enjoy, folks, and this is only a sampling of the truly wonderful, high quality work on display.
