Solarpunk is a genre of speculative fiction that is also its own distinguished aesthetic, focusing mainly on renewable energy and the better future they envision through this, also emphasizing handcrafted wares (as opposed to mass-produced wares) and community. The 'punk' in Solarpunk comes from the genre's anti-authoritarian and anti-capitalist nature, as well as its strong focus on community and prefigurative politics, which is the big separating point between it and an aesthetic like Cyberprep.

Example artist: Luc Schuiten
