Dystopian Postcards From London’s Future
A collection of images on display in the Museum of London reimagines the British capital under threat from encroaching climate chaos.
The London Future exhibition, on display in the Museum of London, hosts a collection of 14 images by illustrators Robert Graves and Didier Madoc-Jones which aim to bring the potential realities of climate change closer to home for the denizens of London.
Including a ‘Twelve Monkeys’ like vision of St. Pauls and the Buckingham Palace Guard on camel back, the collection centers around two visions of the London of the near future; one casts London as victim of intense flooding and the other imagines London as a refugee camp for climate change migrants. The latter scenario suggests provocative images of London landmarks overtaken by shanty towns.
The London Futures Exhibition will run until 6th March 2011.
