Angel Azul explores the work of eco-artist Jason deCaires Taylor, who combines creativity with an important environmental solution. Created from casts of live models, the artist’s underwater statues provide a life-line for the marine ecosystem of south-east Mexico that is struggling from degradation.
Through the hauntingly beautiful lure of deCaires Taylor's underwater museum, we learn how we are inextricably connected to the ocean and everything in it, and are left to consider how our choices will determine what we leave to future generations.
