An Underwater Art Museum, Teeming with Life | Jason deCaires Taylor | TED Talks

Description

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.

He says he does it for ecology, for nature, for justice ... and yet he does the opposite, he does it in an illegal port built by throwing people from their homes, built by dynamiting the seabed. And it does it against the opinion of its inhabitants, in an illegal place, paid by the Government, without transparency, hiding the information.Dice que lo hace por ecología, por la naturaleza, por justicia... y sin embargo hace todo lo contrario, lo hace en un puerto ilegal construido echando a las gentes de sus casas, construido a base de dinamitar los fondos marinos. Y lo hace contra la opinión de sus habitantes, en un local ilegal, pagado por el Gobierno, sin transparencia, ocultando la información.
