Congratulations on New Studio Works
July 1, 2023
Jason deCaires Taylor Taylor’s work is a collaboration with nature. By using low carbon, pH neutral materials designed to be colonised, the surrounding environment transforms the artworks. Each sculpture is effectively an artificial reef that provides new habitat spaces for a variety of marine life whilst drawing tourists away from natural, fragile areas. The works, which are assimilated by the sea, send a message of regeneration and hope at a time of significant threats to our marine world.

Each year, over half a million people worldwide visit Taylor’s museums and sculpture parks. These unique underwater attractions act as portals to the marine world and provide visitors with intimate encounters with marine life and an alternative perspective on our blue planet.

“Museums are places of conservation, education, and about protecting something sacred. We need to assign those same values to our oceans.”
