Here’s a thing I’ve had around in my head for a while!

Okay, so I’m pretty sure that by now everyone at least is aware of Steampunk, with it’s completely awesome Victorian sci-fi aesthetic. But what I want to see is Solarpunk – a plausible near-future sci-fi genre, which I like to imagine as based on updated Art Nouveau, Victorian, and Edwardian aesthetics, combined with a green and renewable energy movement to create a world in which children grow up being taught about building electronic tech as well as food gardening and other skills, and people have come back around to appreciating artisans and craftspeople, from stonemasons and smithies, to dress makers and jewelers, and everyone in between. A balance of sustainable energy-powered tech, environmental cities, and wicked cool aesthetics. 

A lot of people seem to share a vision of futuristic tech and architecture that looks a lot like an ipod – smooth and geometrical and white. Which imo is a little boring and sterile, which is why I picked out an Art Nouveau aesthetic for this.

With energy costs at a low, I like to imagine people being more inclined to focus their expendable income on the arts!

Aesthetically my vision of solarpunk is very similar to steampunk, but with electronic technology, and an Art Nouveau veneer.

So here are some buzz words~

Natural colors!
Art Nouveau!
Handcrafted wares!
Tailors and dressmakers!
Streetcars!
Airships!
Stained glass window solar panels!!!
Education in tech and food growing!
Less corporate capitalism, and more small businesses!
Solar rooftops and roadways!
Communal greenhouses on top of apartments!
Electric cars with old-fashioned looks!
No-cars-allowed walkways lined with independent shops!
Renewable energy-powered Art Nouveau-styled tech life!

Can you imagine how pretty it would be to have stained glass windows everywhere that are actually solar panels? The tech is already headed in that direction!  Or how about wide-brim hats, or parasols that are topped with discreet solar panel tech incorporated into the design, with ports you can stick your phone charger in to?

i am so into this wow

sign me the fuck up

I want a solarpunk future. *_*

Wow.

SOLARPUNK OH MY GODDDDDD i love it

CURVY ORGANIC LINES, REFLECT NATURE, FLORALS VEGETATION, UGHHHH I WANT IT 

I know I already reblogged this but THE IDEA OF SOLARPUNK IS SO COOL AND I WANT EVERYONE TO KNOW ABOUT IT

Wow I am very taken with this. A punk aesthetic that looks forward rather than looking back and romanticizing European colonialism. I do love me some steampunk, but the weight of all that brass and those layers of clothes and the brown and greyness of it all is very… yeah, weighty. Dark and drab and heavy, no matter where its set, like it takes English winters with it. I love the light, Miyazaki-like feel of these images, which inspires to me a kind of hopefulness about the future that we could achieve together. 

Also interested in what this kind of world would be like in places like India or South America, places that are generally ignored except for their exploratory and exploitative value in steampunk that is set in alternate versions of the real world. My first thought when I saw this was of the great green wall of Africa. Afropunk is already so creative and fantastical; what better place to set a solarpunk story?

Hooooly shit I’ve wanted this my whole life and never even knew it

I wanted to post a little update concerning the modern Romeo & Juliet I’m working on. I tried to put some text but I thought making it a ‘mute’ comic could be interesting ! This is page 2, out of 5 !

every day:

  • go outside to feel the sun (5-15 minutes is recommended)
  • if there is no sun step outside and inhale fresh air
  • drink water - the more cups the better
  • listen to one song that makes you happy
  • talk to one person you like - do not hesitate to reach out
  • stretch; don’t forget about your body
  • smile in the mirror
