WONDERS OF LIFE

Sculptor and environmental activist Jason deCaires Taylor, an artist well-known for his underwater sculpture installations, has done it again. His new mind-boggling installation, the Museo Atlantico, consists of 12 different sections, each making a comment on a modern humanitarian issue. Near the island of Lanzarote (Canary Islands), beneath the surface of the sea, stand hundreds of life-sized concrete works of art. There also sits a 30-meter wall and botanical garden as part of the display. Not only aesthetically pleasing, Taylor’s work brings awareness to ocean conservation issues by acting as artificial reefs and creating habitats for fish and coral to flourish. The concrete also brings to light humanitarian affairs we face as well, including the topics of immigration and climate change. Beautiful, unique, and haunting with a good message: definitely our type of innovator. Check out more of Taylor’s work over at The Creators Project.
