I just discovered artist Jason Taylor, who creates underwater sculpture gardens. Whoo boy, this guy is speaking my language. These pieces are intended to create environments for reefs to develop on the actual work. Amazing!

Grace Reef


From his website:

“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.”

I just love an artist statement that uses the word “whilst.” Now I just need to make a dive trip to see these in person!
