In this artistic showcase, McCormick and Scales offer essays on the living sculptures of Jason deCaires Taylor, which are built from a scaffold of rough cement that attracts corals and marine life. After a foreword by the artist, McCormick reflects on their magical quality and the way they tap into ancient reservoirs of transcendent meaning through very scientific modern methods, while Scales discusses marine ecology and the contribution such sculptures make to sustainability. The majority of the book consists of color plates showing the sculptures, the succession of life-forms to grow on them, and some of the design and installation process.
