I’m very pleased to be able to announce that I’m collaborating with underwater sculptor Jason deCaires Taylor in his upcoming book. It will feature his international works that highlight the complex relationship between people and the oceans. I’ve been a great fan of Jason’s work since I interviewed him for the Naked Oceans podcast a few years ago, and it’s great to have a chance to work with him again.
I’m writing an introduction for his book, giving an overview of the state of the oceans (and coral reefs in particular). I’ll also be introducing the science behind artificial reefs and discussing how artwork like his can help raise ocean awareness.
The book is due out in 2014.
