Default Really cool underwater art/sculptures


I thought this was pretty awesome, particularly seeing how they placed all the sculptures down there and watching them evolve over time.

If you cannot youtube, the works were created by Jason deCaires Taylor.

At first glance I thought the title said "underwear sculptures".

Some future civilization is going to come across this after it had been long forgotton and think they found people that were entombed from a volcano, or had thought this had once been above ground and was flooded.

Pretty cool stuff. And for you tools saying they only put it there to attract people...do you fault museums for putting paintings in empty buildings? Where exactly should he put his underwater artwork to attract people to look at it? Pipeline?
