Gas Rig Art Installations

Newsubstance Builds a Striking Art Installation in England

— September 27, 2022 — Art & Design
A striking art installation occupies space on "a former North Sea offshore gas platform in Weston-super-Mare, England." Conceptualized and built by Newsubstance, the art installation is part of the Unboxed festival.

The structure is four stories high (a total of 35 meters) and it features a 10-foot-tall cascading waterfall. Newsubstance titled this striking art installation 'See Monster.' The studio has included a wild garden, a number of kinetic artworks (one by Ivan Black and one by Trevor Lee, for example), a multi-level slide, and more. All of these are built atop a 450-tonne platform. The culmination of all these elements makes See Monster "one of the largest art installations in the UK" and there is certainly much to explore in the striking art installation

Trend Themes
1. Offshore Art Installations - There is an opportunity for artists to create unconventional installations on offshore gas platforms that no one else would expect, which can create an utterly unique visitor experience and attract more tourism attention.
2. Kinetic Art - There is an opportunity for artists to use mechanical devices and electric motors to create dynamic works of art, which make the artwork even more interactive and engaging to the people viewing them.
3. Environmental Art - There is an opportunity for artists to create artworks that focus on environmental issues to raise awareness and inspire positive action towards sustainability, which can include recycled materials and renewable energy sources to reduce environmental impact.
Industry Implications
1. Tourism - The tourism industry can benefit from these unconventional installations on offshore gas platforms, as it can create a unique attraction that people wouldn't usually find in traditional travel destinations.
2. Art and Culture - The art and culture industry can benefit from the use of kinetic art and environmental-focused works of art, as it can attract younger audiences and encourage more people to appreciate and engage in contemporary art.
3. Renewable Energy - The renewable energy industry can benefit from artists using their mediums to draw attention to the importance of sustainable energy sources, inspiring more individuals and businesses to adopt cleaner energy solutions such as those that are next-generation and non-polluting.
