What is body casting?
Since 2015 ARTIST, Ernest Vasquez and Sierra Rasberry, have been PIONEERING Miami Body Cast studio. They'VE worked with dozens of prolific models, social media influencers, and celebrities as part of the MANY art projects INCLUDED WITHin THEIR GALLERY.
What began as a simple idea of turning the models into mermaids has now grown into a long term project that will involve many people, volunteers, businesses, organizations, environmental agencies, local and federal government involvement, and even the Army Corps of Engineers. Miami Body Cast has set a goal to create 1000 body sculptures made-up of a sustainable concrete which allows infant coral to adhere to it and restore Florida’s living coral reef population. Each cast will be individually handcrafted by Miami Body Cast and then strategically laid along the ocean of Florida’s east coast. Not only does this project promote eco-friendly awareness and support for the ocean, but it will also become the stage for a world-renowned snorkeling destination.
