Back to the Sea

Jason de Caires Taylor

Artist Jason de Caires Taylor
creates life-size human figures and submerges them in the sea. As time goes on, they become home to reefs and fish. These remind me of Atlantis or some underwater shrine.

  1. At first glance, I thought they were living people (good at breath-holding)…things underwater that seem to belong somewhere else have always called to me, repelled and attracted. Can you imagine all that IS at the bottom of the sea? xo

      I did too!! Startled me. It’s so misunderstood, the sea. I’m fascinated by the wreckage. Everything she’s consumed. But I loved this because it seemed like an ode to her, a shrine. Something beautiful of our bodies we could give back. A gift in a sense. xo
