JASON deCAIRES TAYLOR, Underwater Sculpture

CANCUN UNDERWATER MUSEUM

Here in Santa Barbara, de-commissioned oil platforms have become ocean habitats. Now, who wants to disturb such re-appropriation and tell Mother Earth she can’t homestead in the Santa Barbara Channel? I have mixed feelings about this issue, but hold no reservations about the underwater sculptures of Jason deCaires Taylor, created in the waters off Cancun, Mexico, which are art-in-the-making, thanks to Mother Earth. See Taylor’s website for more images of his work, which began in 2009.
