Angel Azul

Marcy Cravat

Our documentary will explore the artistic journey of Jason deCaires Taylor, an innovative artist who combines creativity with an important environmental solution. His hauntingly beautiful installations, most recently 400 life-like cement statues made from plaster molds of a diverse selection of human models, have found their place thirty feet down on the ocean floor in a museum he founded; the Museo Subacuatico de Arte in Cancun, Mexico. His art expresses a profound love for the sea while simultaneously providing a valuable habitat for sea life and coral growth all the while luring divers away from the natural reefs so desperately in need of privacy to regenerate. We will embark along side him as he creates his newest passion, The Angel Azul, until it finds its home on the seabed. With outstretched arms and Gorgonian coral wings that move back and forth with the tide, this sculpture will symbolize a guardian of the reef protecting and nourishing the aquatic life around her. This will be the first kinetic sculpture ever to be placed underwater and may well become an iconic image of Cancun.
