Voyaging from the far reaches of the North Sea, SEE MONSTER will endure blustery winds and roaring waves as it encircles the UK coast in search for a new home. After a lifetime weathering the stormy seas, the retired rig will be reborn at shore in the former 1930s lido, the Tropicana.
Rising up above the weather-beaten coastal wall, SEE MONSTER’s silhouette will stand dominant above the town of Weston-super-Mare, providing an imposing backdrop to the daily life of passers-by. In the quiet hours of the morning, a local paper boy may witness the stirring beast, shrouded in a dense sea fog before the dawning sun burns through. At dusk the Monster will blaze, a golden beacon above the beach that heralds the end of a long summer’s day.
Rendered in nostalgic sepia tones, this series of imagined experiences considers how SEE MONSTER’s presence will impress upon Weston-super-Mare and all those who reside within. What will it be like to live with a Monster?
