Wow!

"a miniature post-apocalyptic world, burned, looted and devoid of all human life apart from a swell of police make up british artist james cauty's ‘the aftermath dislocation principle part I'. the construction is a vast 1:87 scale model detailing the a desolate, charred aftermath of what appears to have been a crazed riot in london. the only visible populace are the 5,000 or so police at the scene armed with vans and weapons ready to control and quell. the whole scene is set into motion for the exhibition, as ambulance and street lights strobe in the darkness. as part of the show the 300 glass jars with tiny dystopian scenes that make up ‘the aftermath dislocation principle part II' are on diplay. locked inside jars are isolated vignettes of the riot, capturing specific moments of the dramatic incident. the artwork is a product of months of labor intensive work, building the model using traditional techniques. after its completion, he shattered, smashed, and broke the construction to emulate a destructive scene…."

What is exactly "post-apocalyptic" about this? Looks like a fully functional modern society.

I love the work, but don't see the apocalypse, either. Will there really be functioning street lights after the apocalypse?

If the city switched to solar powered lights earlier, then yes… ;-)

Perhaps, it depends on what triggered the 'crazed riot' i.e. what was the apocalyptic event?
Nuclear attack? People would not rush out into the streets. Just the opposite.
A nuclear detonation due to a terrorist attack w/in your state/province -that- could easily cause mass panic.
