Steampunk, heaven and hell in the garden of NPIRL in Second life

Slideshow: Arm Strom

Crap Mariners project in The Garden of NPIRL. I wonder if he is influenced by the SFi genre Steampunk?

Cyberpunk: From Cybernetics and punk. Interdisiplinary study of structures in complex systems... prosesses for communication, controle mecanisms, evolutionarybiology, neuroscience e.t.c. It has influenced gamingtheory, systemtheory, psychology, philosophy, architecture and more.

Steampunk is a subgenre of phantasy from 1980 and the early nienties. The scene is often laid in England during the Victorian age, and the periode when steamengines were commonly used.

You guess right, Crap is totally crazy of steam and punk, perhaps he is also totally crazy without steampunk, at least he is crazy of cogs, which can be a hint to assess his mental health;)
