Anachronisms (in both directions); Steampunk

Thematic realms:
Steampunk: Alternate-history sci-fi; cyberpunk and information-technology themes applied to past.
Post-cyberpunk: cyberpunk without dystopian assumptions, more technologically optimistic.
“Postliterate” society in fiction.

Why this interest?
1)Because I'm interested in our prehistory, history, our present state, and how little time is between them.
2)In concepts made manifest in unexpected substrates.

The central idea here would likely translate to a piece sculptural in nature, and it's possible to merge this with the more developed ideation I've worked out for my proposal on asemic writing/haptic poetry.
