waiting 2 years for a sculpture to be the way you wanted - that's patience!

lol can you imagine that the future forgets about the existence of the sculptures and when they find it they think that it used to be a civilization that became submerged underwater.

Jason deCaires Taylor inspired by Maffia Cleaning Service...

for those who didn't get it the first line: Maffia used to wack people and throw the bodies in the sea to get rid of the evidence.

2:04 So to protect the coral reefs, the artist suggests to dump bicycles (1:26) and statues (stone/metal) in the water? How will this help the coral reefs?

Why not just stay away from it, don't meddle with it, don't swim through it, don't attract tourists to come and go dive to see it.

I don't like it, it's like dead bodies, maybe the music doesn't fit, maybe I'm in a bad mood, I don't know.

it helps as artificial reefs also become home for sea life. It is very common and useful to sink old ships that are no longer needed. Bikes probaly nice once they have growth on them.
