Recycled plastic bottles, water and dash of chlorine bring light to dark shacks outside Manila.

bubblewrap1My little speaking gig at the Princeton Environmental Film Festival led to a wealth of blogable discoveries (thank you Susan Conlon for organizing such a fantastic event).

First up, we have Lisa Bagwell, a trash artist in the audience whose “deepest intention remains to raise people’s awareness of the wasteful and destructive lifestyle lived by most Americans.”  Lisa just  since sent me links to her lovely site and wonderful Flickr pool of sculpture, lamps and mobiles.  I dig the slightly creepy mobiles and this intimidating bottle blimp.

And are those recycled pistachio shells on that lamp shade?  Iranians of the world, take note!
