Jason deCaires Taylor: The Silent Evolution

Jason deCaires Taylor is taking participatory art to new, er, depths. The sculptor and diving instructor plants statues on the ocean floor, allowing a flash mob of coral, urchin, and fish to transform them into artificial reefs. His latest installation, The Silent Evolution at Mexico's National Marine Park of Cancun, features 400 human lifecasts and their aquatic friends.
