I lived in Mexico for 5 years, met my husband there and then moved to Playa del Carmen for another year before ending up in LA. Playa del Carmen is an hour away from Sian Ka’an and been there several times.
It’s such a pristine paradise that I always felt like an intruder while there. It baffles me to think my lifestyle could be the cause of a new “invasion,” definitely an intrusion.
I loved this so much I shared it today as one of my Mexico Today posts on my site. I dare to link, just because it’s a full credit to you for making me {us} aware of this.

It would be nice to think it gets upcycled into something equally as gorgeous after the installations have been taken apart. Thanks for sharing!

Hmm, maybe I should post about that sometime!

The link to earthship reminded something I’ve seen years ago on Grand designs (on channel4), probably part of the same project: recycled tires, recycled glass jars and bottles, and curves that remind me of Gaudi’s buildings! Well, if you think well Gaudi’s mosaics (think Park Guell or Casa Batll√≥) are made by… broken tiles!

Your desire to build a ‘recycled’ house reminds me of Earthships. http://www.earthship.com/ My hubby and I dream about building one of these houses.

It reminds me a little of the pothole art in Paris. I love to read about how people “upcycle” things. I’ve been trying to think of a way to upcycle children’s books that are worn out (or torn apart)

I am certain that most people don’t pick up their shells and they leave all the crap out there that they used for targets. i thought it would be cool to collect all the different ammo shells and encase them in resign towers around the area, same with the tv’s and other garbage.

Have you heard of Michelle Stitzlein? http://artgrange.com/michelleworkshop.html She creates artwork with kids using bottlecaps. I used her method to create a bottlecap mural in our school cafeteria. My students collected discarded bottlecaps for months to create our international foods display! And being overseas ourselves (China), we collected from around the world as we each traveled to and from China during holidays.
