TED Thursday: An Underwater Museum

Every Thursday I will be choosing and posting a TED Talk that I think should be shared with you. I will not go at length about the benefits of it; they speak for themselves! Instead, I will provide you with the quick presentation blurb for it from TED Talk. You take it from here! This week, the TED Talk I choose to share with you is:

An underwater art museum, teeming with life
with Jason deCaires Taylor:

“For sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor, the ocean is more than a muse — it’s an exhibition space and museum. Taylor creates sculptures of human forms and mundane life on land and sinks them to the ocean floor, where they are subsumed by the sea and transformed from lifeless stone into vibrant habitats for corals, crustaceans and other creatures. The result: Enigmatic, haunting and colorful commentaries about our transient existence, the sacredness of the ocean and its breathtaking power of regeneration.

I was so happy to find this TED Talk last week-end… Why? Because I had come across pictures depicting underwater sculptures a long while back (it seems) and had forgotten about it completely. I remember how fascinated I was the first time I was exposed to them… Once more, I let myself be submerged by sense of wonder and this time I know who is the artist being the marvelous art…  It is with immense joy that I share it with you!
