Recently, Taylor has completed the installation of his largest project, The Silent Evolution, which is situated off the coast of Cancun in the MUSA (Museo Subaquatico de Arté).
“I do design them in certain areas. So the more textured the surface of the sculpture, the more baby polyps of coral attach. It depends on orientation, the depth and the currents,” Taylor told Foto Rater.
Carving cement instead of stone and supervising cranes while in full scuba gear to create artificial reefs submerged below the surface of the Caribbean Sea, the various strands of his diverse life resolve themselves convincingly in the development of his underwater sculptures. These ambitious, public works have a practical, functional aspect, facilitating positive interactions between people and fragile underwater habitats.
