Challenge: Greenpeace, Europe Beyond Coal, and Bankwatch asked us to create a powerful storytelling tool to convey the toxic impact of coal power at COP24. We designed and built an ambitious art installation at the UN’s flagship climate conference COP in Katowice, Poland.
UN COP Installation
Each sculpture was modelled after a real person then 3D printed in biodegradable plastic. Public could follow QR codes to each person’s full story. Stationed by the Greenpeace hub in the coal industry capital of Poland – extraordinary reactions showed how the installation stood out among the typical conventional messaging at the UN’s flagship climate conference.
