Flooded London

Flooded St. Mary\'s

Film and media studio Squint/Opera has created a series of images illustrating life in 2090 London, after the seas have risen.

The images are a mixture of photography, 3D modeling and digital editing which imitate Victorian landscape paintings. The scenes depict a rather halcyon existence; the artists apparently feel that after 80 years everybody will have gotten used to the flooding and learned how to work around it.

I dunno…it’s got a big “we are Eloi” vibe coming off of it that makes me a little unsettled.
