Messy the COP Ness Monster

Everybody meet Messy the COP Ness Monster, who is showing everyone how we can live more sustainably.

Built by Setsquare Creative to be displayed during the COP26 conference, Messy is a five metre-long, three metre-tall sustainably built sculpture. Made using 800 pairs of repurposed jeans, Messy was used to raise awareness of the polluting effects of denim on the environment. The sculpture was a collaboration between artist Billie Achilleos and WaterBear, a streaming platform that exclusively shows content dedicated to saving the planet.

Wherever possible, Setsquare Creative aim to use sustainable products for all builds, searching for the best ways to help our planet.
