I'm reading, thinking, researching, feeling, spying, bribing, robbing, on
the theme of Atompunk, all inspired by your wonderful lines.
Last years GOGBOT theme: Steampunk, about the do-it-yourself attitude and
old crafts versus single-use products and disneyfication of cultural
For me, personally, is Atompunk about the comments on the big world powers
and on the growth of the industrial military complex, on the fear on the
atombomb, and doing this by punk, feeling autonomy.
Online identity, autonomy, are really terms made possible now (only the last
decades) also thanks to the internet we can unfold our personality and
uniqueness like a flower, with groups for every characteristic we have.
So Atompunk for me = Autonomy.
Bjork - Declare Independence:
(and psychonauts, a term inspired on astronauts, enabling people to explore
the universe individually, without mass financial capital)
