Underwater Sculpture
December 20, 2007 6:52 PM   Subscribe

British artist Jason de Caires Taylor creates an underwater sculpture park in the West Indies, not only to "explore the boundaries between art and the environment" but also to portray a beautiful process that happens to be doing nice things for the ecosystem. You can see a video of the sculptures on YouTube.

Let us not forget the lessons of Osborne Reef.

It's good to see that these are made from significantly more environmentally friendly materials than the tires used to create Osborne.

it may just be that I finished reading Shadow over Innsmouth... but I found that video to be excessively creepy.

I do find the idea amazing. But, I was sure worried that one of those sculptures was going to open its eyes.

And the one w/ the giant hat... goah...
