Off the coast of Mexico, a unique museum has been realised, with the aid of concrete sculpture. The Museo Subacuatico de Arte (MUSA) is an underwater sculpture park created by artist Jason deCaires Taylor, with the specialist materials helping to propagate coral growth. Based in the waters surrounding Cancun, The Silent Evolution is comprised of over 400 permanent life sized sculptures to form a complex reef structure for marine life to colonise and inhabit.
Using concrete for his sculptures, Taylor explains, “By creating an artificial reef of sculptures, the ultimate aim of the project is to form a platform to promote the regeneration of marine life and to use sculpture as a means of conveying hope and environmental awareness”.
