The Underwater Museum in the waters of Cancun Mexico are a stark contrast to the natural reefing most of us strive for. However, like the Live Bottles project, this moving display of human likeness will be forever in flux as the sculptures are colonized and overgrown with all the marinelife that a shallow reef makes a home for. We’re not advocating for anyone to start throwing cheap cement artifacts in our reef tanks, but as we become increasingly skilled at growing corals in aquaria, the diversity of displays that reefers around the world can create are seemingly endless. We are very pleased to see so many novel artistic marine life projects taking place and we look forward to seeing what stories can be told by blending living reef life with the human artistic element.
