It’s only been a few months since we last blogged about Jason deCaires Taylor’s excellent recent underwater artwork. But I was so very impressed by his latest piece, entitled Anthropocene, that I decided it deserved a new post of its very own.
Reflecting Jason’s ongoing concern for the environment, this sculpture somewhat satirically takes the form of a car, whilst in fact helping the marine environment by providing a haven for small creatures and forming a kind of artificial coral landscape. Aesthetically speaking, the attractive form of the Volkswagen on the seabed is the latest example of Jason’s incongruous and witty juxtapositions (though perhaps my favourite example of this is his underwater couch potato and his TV dinner titled Inercia).
Anyway, look at these cool pictures and don’t forget to visit Jason’s website underwatersculpture.com
