Are these art installations a message of "change", hope and a better future? Fear and terror comes to mind. Maybe these "art" installations in Copenhagen at the Climate Conference should be viewed as a kind of Psychological Warfare? See for yourself.
A sculpture called The messenger is illuminated with red light next to the Bella Centre. The art is part of the project SevenMeters, using red blinking LEDs to symbolise that the world is moving towards a climate catastrophe

People watch a video on global warming projected on to a floating cube. The scale of the CO2 cube installation represents one tonne of carbon dioxide, the amount an average person in an industrialised country emits each month
Death of Humanity?
Sculptures are illuminated as they stand in a water feature outside the Bella Centre. What is this supposed to represent? Nothing more is said about the installation.
The Survival of the Fattest, a sculpture by Danish artist Jens Galschiot, is seen in the harbour of Copenhagen. The sculpture represents an overweight Lady Justice figurine, symbolising the rich industrialised world, sitting on the back of a thin African man. Were you born in the "wrong" country? Feel very, very guilty!
