spiral island - build your own island.
    #1836080 - 08/21/03 04:10 AM (14 years, 9 months ago)

from http://www.uoregon.edu/~recycle/heroes_text.htm

Richie Sowa, a native of Great Britain, is a sidewalk and mural artist, a fine musician, and the creative force behind this amazing project. His island reflects his motto and goals for mankind.

Described in Ripley's Believe It or Not, published March 26, 2000, Richie constructed this floating island out of 65,000 reused plastic bottles, held together in a huge spiral with palapa roof netting. There he lives, complete with sand beach, fruit trees, a small palapa shelter, a kitchen with a solar cooker, and a self-composting toilet. You have to see it to believe it!

Eventually he will get his water supply from collected rainwater. His plan for the project was to "use the waste from this world as a foundation to create a tranquil piece of paradise and eventually sail around the earth on a floating island with the message of love and faith." Spiral Island is located in the southern canal of Puerto Aventuras south of Cancun, Mexico. Visitors are welcome. Any donation to the project of labor or money will help make his goal a reality.

If you would like to contact him, you can e-mail him at: client@PTOAVENTURAS.COM

He is always open to new ideas that support his vision. Because this is a general e-mail address, be sure to write "Richie, Spiral Island" in the subject line.

As we know, there are known knowns. There are things we know we know. We also know there are known unknowns. That is to say we know there are some things we do not know. But there are also unknown unknowns, the ones we don't know we don't know.

i saw that guy on a tv show ages ago. this guy met an old man in a bar who drew him a map to some sacred peyote site and he stopped by the island on the way.

that guy is definatly a nut. he ate 10 year old fruit cake and moldy wine. he said that when it gets big enough he's going to sail it out to sea and declare it an independent country.

i saw that on tv too. that would be cool to be on. But i dont know about sailing around the world on THAT. If a storm started huge waves would take that out. You'd be fucked if that happened.
