The futurism movement looked at how the imagined future would have looked like for people during and prior to the 1960s (think of it as us looking at people from the past, who are looking back at us, who are from the future, or our present moment). Retrofuturism, on the other hand, combines elements of the past and the future in a nostalgically idealized vision of what the future could have been. It is characterized by a fascination with futuristic technology and design from the past, often depicted in science fiction literature and art, and a desire to recreate or reimagine that vision in the present. Retrofuturism often includes elements of science fiction, nostalgia, and a sense of longing for a future that never came to pass. It can be seen in various forms of media, including literature, film, television, art, and design, and has had a significant influence on popular culture. The dubious origins of the term indicate that it was first used by Lloyd Dunn in 1983 as presented by the Fringe Art Magazine (1988 to 1993). Other indications mention it was also utilized by the author T.R. Hinchcliffe in his book titled, Retro-futurism (1967), which was published by Pelican Books. However, there are various sources that indicate the book does not exist and some sources provide evidence that it does.
