Artist statement:
"Coral reefs have many important functions. For example, they provide shelter for a huge variety of underwater organisms. Many species of fish live there in their early life before swimming out to the open sea. It is a great example of the natural beauty and magic of our oceans. A beauty that is losing its lifeforce and turning into a colorless underwater wasteland devoid of all life due to human impact.

My starting point for this project was the impact of coastal development and the negative and deadly effects it has on the ecosystems close to the shore. 40% of the world's population lives close to the coast, something that causes numerous threats to corals through the ever growing development of human infrastructure and the threat from global warming." - Kilian Eng
