Hey Wizards, who else feels drawn to a certain type of aesthetic? Or feels at home with one? I feel like some places online and in real life give off this vibe of being gateways, or liminal spaces at the entrance of a sort of parallel realm that comprises an aesthetic.https://encyclopedia.zone/Dagger/Blood%20of%20the%20Honorable%20Outside%20Person.html
Sorry if this thread is only for visual stuff but this is an aesthetic I really like and wish I knew words to describe it that would lead me to finding more. I think "phantasmagoria" is a good word for it but nobody uses it that way. Fanged Noumena by Nick Land has a lot of it. Basically the aesthetic is methed out dreamlike mania. A lot of cyberpunk stuff is like this when it's not just doing the neo noir thing.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AAp9dlJIDI8
Here's a song that kind of has the aesthetic CCRU stuff.
have you noticed how a lot of contemporary subculture is the same manic schizophrenia, endless mix of high and low brow references, self-indulgent obscurantism, but stripped of the paranoic, edgy, apocalyptic vibe present in the 90s
