Known for its annual film and advertising festivals, Cannes’ new star is an underwater art museum created by pioneering underwater sculptor Jason de Caires Taylor.
Oversized, mask-like statues now populate the ocean floor just off the coast. This latest submerged installation from Taylor joins his other recent work at the Museum of Underwater Art off the Great Barrier Reef of Australia.
“The Museum of Underwater Art (MOUA) is a globally-significant asset to Townsville North Queensland and the surrounding regions and more broadly to Queensland and Australia. As the first of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, MOUA will act to highlight reef conservation, restoration and education on a global scale,” reads the project description.
