"On Friday, November 6, a few hundred waist-coated women and mustachioed men took a break from the standard bustle of Downtown Vancouver and fell into The Fall, a two-level artists’ space at 644 Seymour Street with a retail store and art gallery on the first level, and a tattoo and body piercing studio upstairs. Leaving cars and city busses careening through puddles and snorting along busy sidewalks behind, these fancy people took off to a time and place that no form of transportation trundling along Seymour could take them.
The Fall served as the backdrop for the Steampunk Symposium, an event of art, fashion and music in the style of steampunk, a sci-fi subculture that imagines what the world would be like if people still subscribed to steam as the main source of machine power."
