SEE MONSTER will rehabilitate and reimagine a decommissioned North Sea offshore platform
in Weston-super-Mare, transforming the retired industrial structure into a large-scale public art

SEE MONSTER is brought to life by Leeds-based creative studio NEWSUBSTANCE and
supported by North Somerset Council.

Located in the town’s former 1930s lido, the Tropicana, the arrival of SEE MONSTER aims to
align with the emerging cultural landscape of the town. Drawing on Weston-super-Mare’s
unique locality, the project aims to shine a light on the resilience of our coast, creating
opportunities and generating new possibilities for the life of this retired structure.

After a lifetime at sea, the regenerated platform will harness renewable energy from the natural
elements, in celebration of the great British weather and British eccentricity. It will explore the
concept of inherited structures, be those physical, social, or environmental. What do we do with
the structures we inherit? How do they play a part in our lives, and what actions can they
inspire both individually and universally?

With landscapes weaved throughout the structure that
work to amplify SEE MONSTER’s message, the project poses a question of how pre-existing
ideas can be challenged and changed through creativity.

This is just one of our Festive Treats! Watch out for more of them!
