antlers, kettle drums, and funny horns
It's a bit strange no fashion house has attempted to create such an all-encompassing environment or maybe they have, I don't know. Rick Owens has produced furniture and soft toys as well as clothes and shoes but he borrows other people's music and it's not wholly consistent.
Some fandoms (e.g. Star Wars) are large enough you can effectively live in them—endless Star Wars novels, Star Wars art, Star Wars film & TV spinoffs, Star Wars cosplay and conventions, Star Wars video games and LARPs and bulletin boards and Discords.
punk is one for sure, that spanned music, literature, fashion etc,
techno/rave was another imho, it doesnt have the same coherence of brand but it was some sort of futurism that took off in early 90's late 80's
and goth, of course?
or are these too broad and obvious
Maybe fandoms are more passive/reactive in that they aren't driving the aesthetic system forward? I'd imagine most fanfiction stuff measures itself by how well it stays within the aesthetic system defined by the original content, rather than by how well it pushes the boundaries, but that could be a limited perspective.What do you think the difference is?

Ooh, this is deeper than anything I'd thought of but go on...
Let's not pretend that Cyberpunk isn't just "Hong Kong in the 90s" with flying cars addedI think the ones of more interest to me are the ones that don't come from music. I think music scenes are one thing, something that is kinda real in a sense, and then all these other bits might join on. But cyberpunk comes out of an imaginary world and is thus much more artificial and, for the purposes of this thread at least, pure in some sense. Albeit pure artifice.
Maybe so, but if that was called into existence by Neuromancer and Bladerunner etc then that makes them all the more powerful no?
As an aside, off the top of my head those are THE ur-texts of cyberpunk right? What else? How about films? I'm thinking, er, Bladerunner... what are the other defining works of art?
