pretty good description there, and also good criticisms!
also here's the vaporwave page from the same wiki: https://aesthetics.fandom.com/wiki/Vaporwave
I was wondering...
Does the Biosphere 2 project count as cottagecore?
I mean this was kind of a goal...
"It is centered on ideas of simple living and harmony with nature. Themes associated with cottagecore include self-sufficiency, baking, and caring for people."
Just pay no attention to the basement full of machinery.
I think conceptually yes, but aesthetically no? As far as I can tell (and I'm not an expert), the aesthetics of the cottagecore ideal are based on the nostalgic past of European farm life: long skirts, sweaters, wood/stucco construction/etc and the biosphere looked more futuristic but with lots of plants inside.
