Jason deCaires Taylor is a sculptor and photographer who has found a way to combine both artistic practices in his work. This artist creates subaquatic galleries of sculptures that become artificial coral reefs, and then he captures the ever-changing state of his inhabited sculptures through his beautiful photography. The image above shows his new kinetic sculpture Phoenix whose wings appear to move with the flux of the waves. The wings have been propagated with rescued fan coral that had been uprooted.
