Solarpunk and Art Nouveau – short thread
@InvaderXan Beauty is not just for the wealthy: this is an important point we really need to emphasize, especially as in practice "beauty" among the wealthy tends more toward grotesque gaudiness reflecting their egos.
I come from a Modernist, Art Deco, Bauhaus artistic background, and the more flamboyant side of cyberpunk. I can see Deco as a dialectical synthesis of Nouveau and Bauhaus, and go either direction. That's pretty much how I already write.
