Underwater art: The Silent Evolution

News of a very cool art installation that doubles as an artificial reef off Cancun, Mexico, in what looks like delightfully warm water! Jason de Caires Taylor is an artist who specialises in underwater art. The 400 life size sculptures of people are constructed from a cement mix that encourages coral growth.

There are tons of pictures on the artist’s website. Here’s a video off youtube:

The visibility is for miles, and the sculptures are installed in water shallow enough to snorkel in. Looks like an awesome place to visit!
