It is named in honor of Zoe Anderson, a woman who lost her life at age 24 in a tragic accident when carbon monoxide from a poorly-installed heater entered her home. Zoe was killed by carbon monoxide, but its sister molecule is threatening our entire planet.
Carbon dioxide is raising the world’s temperature and our oceans are carrying the biggest burden. Across the globe, seawater is becoming less habitable for many species due to rising temperatures, acidification, and pollution.
Coral reefs are bleaching and dying rapidly as a result.
The area where this Living Sea Sculpture is placed has been gravely affected by
development and hurricanes. What was once a gloriously rich coral ecosystem has lost much of its former glory. Perhaps not forever. Local divers and conservationists are working to restore the reefs. This project is part of that effort. It is intended to inspire hope, caring, and action. If we help create the right conditions and halt our destructive activities, nature can once again revel in its abundance.
There is rich symbolism here. The fusion of science and art, fragility and abundance, death and life, a call to action and a celebration of beauty. This is ZOE!
