Jason deCaires Taylor

Jason deCaires Taylor installed site specific underwater sculptures which develop into artificial coral reef, utilising his skills as a sculptor, marine conservationist and underwater photographer. His works in Grenada have been listed among the 25 wonder of the world, by National Geographic.

 

The works are constructed using pH neutral materials to instigate natural growth and the subsequent changes intended to explore the aesthetics of decay, rebirth and metamorphosis. These ambitious, permanent public works have a practical, functional aspect, facilitating positive interactions between people and fragile underwater habitats while at the same relieving pressure on natural resources.
