The Museo Atlantico is the first underwater art museum in Europe. It aims to create a large artificial reef formed by sculptures made with neautral pH concrete that will in time increase its biomass. The fasilities include the work of Jason deCaires Taylor, highlighting the bond between art and nature allowing visitors to become aware of the importance of the sea and all natural resources. 2% of the income generated by the museum will go to sea protection and preservation projects. The Museo Atlantico will be completed in 2017. The museum currently has six different areas with contemporary areas. Los Jolateros A group of children on brass crafts called "jolateros" being used as a metaphor for the precarious possible future of our children. The Raft of Lampedusa representing the abandonment of humanity during the refugee crisis. A thought about hope and loss. Content A faceless couple taking a selfie encourages you to think about the use of all our technologies for self reference. Strategically placed next to the raft of lampedusa showing the couple with their back to the tragedy. El Rubicon 35 human figures heading in the same direction. All the sculptures are base don local residents of Lanzarote. Hybrids Merging nature and humanity living in harmony. These sculptures are half human and half cactus. The Photographers The photographers bring up the use of technology and the new voyeurism it brings.
