I have decided to take an in-depth look at retrofuturism, as inspiration for future projects. I found this particular topic quite interesting as had seemed to drop in popularity during the late 1970’s, and I feel it is slowly gaining more attention in recent years.
The whole style started in the early 19th century and peaked in popularity during the early 1960’s. Retrofuturism is an optimistic look at the future and it’s technologies but with modern technologies as inspiration.
Typically these visions are very far from the reality, however they do have a strong impact on the media, inspiring films such as; Star wars, A space odyssey, Alien, etc.
