The Invisible (and visible) People of the Steam Punk City

There is a gap between the world people build and the one they accept. One is fantasy.

It is in this space between imagination and fulfilment that the people of the Steam Punk City live. It becomes invisible through familiarity, yet is constantly maintained nonetheless. It is not considered a creative space. Rendering it invisible is considered the creative act. Yet, look at it below. Even erasure can be erased by making itself boldly present in this space.
