He is a British sculptor who was the first to create a underwater sculpture park/museum at Isla Mujeres National Marine Park.

What interests me within his work, is not a particular installation, but his practice as the whole. Focusing on Environmentalism in my Philosophy, which is also echoed within my practice this illustrates a very unusual and interesting way to introduce the human made objects into the wilderness, in order for them to become a part of nature.It is also interesting to look on how quickly nature takes its territory back and destroys the sculptures. As this is what I want to achieve, to illustrate the power of nature and the human anthropocentrism.

The socio-political context also plays an important role within his practice, as he tries to make people think about the world we live in and what we do with the planet with live on.

It made me think of the ways people deliver their messages through art, as well as what is the successful way of working within Environmentalism as in Philosophy and as well as within Art.

‘His pioneering public art projects are not only examples of successful marine conservation, but works of art that seek to encourage environmental awareness, instigate social change and lead us to appreciate the breathtaking natural beauty of the underwater world.

During the summer of 2014 Taylor submerged “Ocean Atlas” in the Bahamas, which is currently the largest single underwater sculpture in the world measuring 5 meters high and weighing over 60 tons’
