Vicissitudes

Artist Jason de Caires Taylor creates these wonderful underwater sculptures, providing an ideal platform for organisms to grow and change the work. In this way, this is so similar to what we wish to create – a platform for life to form the artwork upon.  As time passes and the works change, they reshape and redefine the underwater landscape in unpredictable ways, to encourage coral inhabitation he uses a mix of marine grade cement, sand and micro-silica to produce a pH neutral concrete. I adore the textures and colours created by the coral, which looks very much like bacteria.
