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 

So pretty. Want. Now.

i’m back from the exam. i’ve passed it and even got a good mark! (4+)

funny thing, my teacher started with “feminist” author and all questions were in that theme. i’m super glad because i hate talking about old farts like Mickiewicz or Żeromski (i’m sure men where 3/4 of the listed authors but I managed to include some female authors). then she mentioned that i actually wanted to write my essay about komornicka/włast, so i started talking about him. i changed the topic in my favour… hahaha speech increased to 17.

before i left home i was so sure that i’m going to be asked about a book i never managed to finish. and turns out i was right! the last question was the reason i didn’t get the best mark. i laughed about it then and the whole exam is still funny to me

oth i managed to read/get familiar with about 24 books in a month or so? that’s been quite a ride. but let’s not repeat that.

i’m having exam soon, i still don’t know anything about two books i chose, and don’t feel very confident about three poets. what are the chances that i’m going to be asked about them… probably high. anyway i’m never good at oral exams so
