Underwater Sculptures

January 29, 2010

This will blow your mind… This definitely sinks the competition….

Creator of the world’s first underwater sculpture park, Jason de Caires Taylor has gained international recognition for his unique work. His sculptures highlight ecological processes whilst exploring the intricate relationships between modern art and the environment. By using sculptures to create artificial reefs, the artist’s interventions promote hope and recovery, and underline our need to understand and protect the natural world.

The sculptures are sited in clear shallow waters to afford easy access by divers, snorkellers and those in glass-bottomed boats. Viewers are invited to discover the beauty of our underwater planet and to appreciate the processes of reef evolution.

    I’m not one for eco-conscious talk, or anything “green”, or especially art babble, but I have to say that this work is not only visually impressive, the concept of submerging it and allowing nature to have its way is extremely cool. BRAVO!
