Jason de Caires Taylor

Check out Jason de Caires Taylor. He makes all life size sculptures of people and puts them underwater. There are even some riding bikes or sitting at a desk. Over time they start to produce coral on them. This creates an artificial reef that can support an entire marine ecosystem. It also takes pressure off of natural reefs so they can repair and regenerate. Plus! It's insanely beautiful and awesome. I'm obsessed.

  1. These are gorgeous Mariah! It evokes sort of a lost world/ atlantas/ hidden treasure sort of thing in me... they’d be incredible to scuba dive someday.
