They're about to start an 'underwater museum' in Cancun, though from the description it sounds more like an underwater sculpture gallery.  The intention is to collect 400 pieces for the sculpture museum which will make it the world's largest (underwater sculpture museum).  Interesting and aquatic...

I imagine that like arranging sculpture in a garden, the setting influences the way people view the art...though a diving mask and air bubbles...or though the glass bottom of a boat...?

They're just included two new works heading towards the 400 goal: La Jardinera de la Esperanza (The Gardener of Hope), which depicts a girl tending pot plants full of coral cuttings – the museum is also about raising awareness for coral damage – and El Archivero de los Suenos Perdidos (The Archive of Lost Dreams) which is a collection of messages in bottles.  The best thing about the messages in the bottles is that you have a chance to send one in and have it bottled and your message can be part of this aquatic idea.   

If you want your message included, send in your secret hope, or dream, or fear or just a message to the ether send it on a 15 x 20 cm piece of paper to:

Jason deCaires Taylor

Studio A007

The Chocolate Factory

5 Clarendon RdLondon N22 6XJ, UK

If you don't want your message published to more than the fish and visitors to the underwater museum you should probably make that clear...

  • Mehrangarh Fort by zipline?

    You can toboggan down the Great Wall of China, and now zipline over the Mehrangarh Fort in Jodphur. Supposedly this is 'the invader's eye view' of the fort, darting in on metal cables between the fort's battlements and ramparts.

  • In love with a birds eye view of the world...

    There's a song that says pilots are in love with the sky and it's nice to hear from one of them that it's true: Mark Vanhoenacker is one such pilot, he's just written a piece reminding us of the pleasures of being a passenger in the window seat.
