energy Postcards from the future

The Museum of London is hosting an exhibition of (manipulated) photos, showing London as imagined as climate change takes effect. The exhibition, London Futures opened 1st October 2010, and runs through to 6th March 2011.

The images from the exhibition can also be seen at the artist's site at London Futures, and there are a number that feature windmill related themes.

The images are certainly striking - though not particularly well thought through - wind turbines that barely clear the surrounding buildings are not likely to work very well for example. Most of the images are included in a book of postcards that the Museum bookshop has for sale - but the images at postcard size are really too small to be properly appreciated, and this seems a poor reflection of the exhibition itself. Apparently the artist did not want any more appropriate size images to be made available.
