    This is very sad.

    This morning I received an email from Jason deCaires Taylor about his project in the Maldives:

    “On Friday last week I was extremely shocked and heartbroken to learn that my sculptures have been destroyed by the Maldivian Authorities at the Coralarium, despite continued consultations and dialogue.

    The Coralarium was conceived to connect humans to the environment and a nurturing space for marine life to thrive. Nothing else!

    The Maldives is still beautiful, with a warm and friendly population but it was a sad day for art and sad day for the environment. ”
