Steampunk show imagines Jules Verne gadgets
What if Captain Nemo had a cell phone and PC? A group of artists reimagines the world of Jules Verne in the information age.
An ongoing exhibition running through the end of May imagines the world of "Twenty Thousand Leagues Under the Sea" with steampunk tech.
Nemo's Steampunk Art & Invention Gallery, named after the novel's Captain Nemo, brings together some 40 works and 29 artists from North America, Australia, and Croatia at Patriot Place's North Lifestyle Center in Foxboro, Mass.
Organizers including Bruce Rosenbaum, whoseblew our minds last year, have imagined an "alternate reality where the Victorian period happened at the same time as the computer or information age."
The show is part of the Jules Verne's 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea Interactive Entertainment Experience, which brings to life Nemo's famous Nautilus submarine.
The steampunk exhibition runs through the end of May and includes punked-out bicycles, guitars, and cell phones. Check out the photos in our gallery.
