On the 25th of February 2016, a strange museum “opened” in Spain. The artist Jason deCaires Taylor installed the first phase of sculptures in Museo Atlantico. This is the first underwater museum of contemporary art in the waters of the coast of Lanzarote in Spain.
The visitors must dine into 14 meters underwater to have a tour. Is is a unique installation project dedicated to the humanitarian crisis of our days.
“The project drawing on the dialogue between art and nature is designed on a conversational level to create a large scale artificial reef to aggregate local fish species and increase marine biomass whilst, on the other hand, to raise awareness to current threats facing the worlds oceans. The main installation, The Rubicon features a group of 35 people walking towards a gate, a point of no return or a portal to another world.”
You may think its scary but the true numbers of the people who died trying to reach Europe the past two years are beyond scary. This is a tribute to the lost souls; the people who escaped from the war zones, put their lives in danger and they got lost in the sea.
