British artist Jason Decaires Taylor’s (@jason_decaires_taylor) sculptures live under the sea. His newest aquatic installation is on display at the Atlantic Museum, an underwater museum off the coast of Lanzarote, one of the Canary Islands. “A lot of the narrative of the sculptures is about global warming, about a denial of what’s happening to our resources,” he says of his sculptures. “On a practical level, they are designed to encourage people to go into the ocean, to get to know more about the environment.” Made from a special type of marine cement, the life-size pieces host different species of sponge, coral and fish. “I am hoping that in the future they will be completely inundated with life and transformed,” he says. #EarthDay
