Jason deCaires Taylor:
An underwater art museum, teeming with life
For sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, the ocean is more than a muse — it's an exhibition space and museum. Taylor creates sculptures of human forms and mundane life on land and sinks them to the ocean floor, where they are subsumed by the sea and transformed from lifeless stone into vibrant habitats for corals, crustaceans and other creatures. The result: Enigmatic, haunting and colorful commentaries about our transient existence, the sacredness of the ocean and its breathtaking power of regeneration.

Jason deCaires Taylor's art is half sculpted by him, half crafted by the ocean. These eight projects from the past decade show off their unique underwater secrets.
