Today is the Tomorrow you were promised Yesterday

Friday 15th Feb saw a cold, snowy day in Odaiba (the newest part of Tokyo, that rests on reclaimed land near Tokyo Bay) where I was off to do some research in the MIRAIKAN – the Tokyo Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation. I was rather surprised to find the place almost empty – so I decided to take some snaps, as an exercise in Futurism.

I deliberately framed the shots to avoid human beings where possible, and I am not putting up any captions.
