Jason de Caires Taylor’s underwater sculptures create a unique, absorbing and expansive visual seascape. Highlighting natural ecological processes Taylor’s interventions explore the intricate relationships that exist between art and environment. His works become artificial reefs, attracting marine life, while offering the viewer privileged temporal encounters, as the shifting sand of the ocean floor, and the works change from moment to moment.
Jason deCaires Taylor has gained significant interest and recognition for his unique work, with features in over 1000 publications around the world, including National Geographic, Vogue, USA today, the BBC, and CNN and he has made several TV appearances. His international reputation was established in May 2006, when he created the world’s first underwater sculpture park in Grenada, West Indies, leading to both private and public commissions.
Taylor is currently founder and Artistic Director of the Museo Subacuático del Arte (MUSA) in Cancun, Mexico.
Credo E-Bone, a brainchild of Peter Simon for his industrial design degree project at the University of West Hungary, is an environmentally friendly and sustainable public transportation solution. The concept bus is powered by hydrogen fuel cell technology with four in-wheel motors. The bus shell is made of lightweight composite plastic which is a bone-like material composition with varied density close to joints. The lightweight construction makes the concept energy-efficient.
The organic design is quite supplemental to the overall bus concept that catches attention immediately. It would be interesting to see such concepts becoming reality to make public transport greener.
