The project draws on the dialogue between art and nature. It is designed on a conservational level to create a large scale artificial reef to aggregate local fish species and increase marine biomass whilst, on the other hand, questions the commodification and delineation of the world ́snatural resources and raises awareness to current threats facing the worlds oceans. The central concept is depicted by means of a monumental gateway and division which will include a series of installations based on the dialogue between past and present and the divisions between society with both political and social comment. The works will incorporate for the first time architectural installations and an underwater botanical sculpture garden referencing local flora and fauna of Lanzarote, which has unique status as a UNESCO World Biosphere Reserve.
