underwater sculptures

“The experience of being underwater is vastly different from that of being on land.”

In Jason de Caires Taylor’s exhibit, colours appear differently, objects seem larger — they seem closer. The light comes only from the surface, and together with the movement of the water, this creates a kaleidoscopic effect.

The movement of the water — which impacts the way we see the sculptures — allows us to become actively engaged with the pieces.
