Founder of Ukhta steampunk club Oleg Andreev: "the World has become a one-time»



In Ukhta was held steampunk festival. Fans of alternative history and England of the XIX century from the club "Golden age" reincarnated in the characters of the time, organized a fair of themed accessories and sent visitors in 1856. The organizer of the event Oleg Andreev told BNC how the idea to promote paropank in Ukhta came, whether local youth are interested in this direction and why the club members create things and mechanisms themselves, and do not order on the Internet.

- What started your hobby?

- I got acquainted with steampunk ten years ago, in General I love science fiction, read countless authors, and here with paropank (steam = steam) I was hooked stronger than the others. XIX century is beautiful becoming masters in art, handicraft, industry and science, it is especially noticeable on the example of England. Complex mechanisms, calculating machines, steam computers and robots — humanity has made a huge leap in development, but at the same time still remained cultural and noble — there were ladies, gentlemen, manners — this has its own beauty.

- Most of the elements of costumes, decorations, mechanisms-made by you and other members of the club. Isn't it easier now to order all the attributes via the Internet?

- The world has become a one-time, and I want to do something about it, to use things that have aesthetic value, keep the soul invested by the master. This approach is especially important for steampunk. I really came in handy experience gained in the club of historical fencing. I understood how to work with leather, iron, learned to sew, knit.

One of the first major projects was the steam robot for the Cabinet role-playing game, of course, made clothes and accessories (goggle glasses, etc.). But a special pride is the airship. The work was difficult, I read a lot, looked to make not just a beautiful, but a working model.

The funny thing is that the airship, other artifacts, attributes are made of waste materials — something found on the street, friends brought unnecessary or broken things-like trash, but it then turns into unusual and beautiful things. Until now, I continue to study with the rest of the participants, and such joint creativity is what the club was created for.

- This festival is the third, in your opinion, has steampunk managed to gain popularity in Ukhta over the years?

- Unfortunately, there is no special interest, in General, there is little, catastrophically little, cultural events, creative activities. Young people do not know what to do, she is bored, then they leave at all. And the "Golden age" is an attempt to change something. During this time changed several line-UPS is fine, someone leaves, but still their stories about the steampunk interest the newcomers.

And now there is the backbone of, which can much. In this sense, this festival is the best proof. I had practically no relation to its organization, generally helped with suits and a requisite, and children thought over everything, arranged – it was very pleasant to watch them, I am very grateful to them.

Like an honest man. We in Russia are skeptical of modern domestic films. We don't expect much from them. Although this film does not pretend to be a blockbuster.
