Underwater Art Breathes Life Into Depleted Coral Reefs
A Kickstarter-funded initiative will place chemically balanced artwork at the bottom of the ocean to help nourish coral reefs back to health.
Senior TED Fellow and artist Colleen Flanigan was invited to share her Biorock designs with the MUSA (Museo Subacuatico de Arte), the world’s first underwater museum located off the coasts of Cancun, Islas Mujeres and Punta Nizuc in Mexico. Colleen’s artwork is comprised of metal structures that will chemically offset the damage done to coral reefs from pollution and global warming. When her artwork is positioned on the ocean floor, it will serve as regenerative base for coral reef to feed off off of and flourish.
