The Sign almost done!
Pixels in place! There’s a little more love in Ubud today!
I am really excited about this sign we’re assembling for a funky new sustainability store in the center of town. Yesterday, we got the last of the 600 bottles in place to complete the sign! The letters are made from bottles with water and food coloring, […]
A long time ago, in a land far away (by the name of Pensilvania) I was biking through the forest. It was the summer of 2009 and I was on an epic bike adventure from Smithers BC to Berlin. I had with me my tent and camping equipment as I cycled down the CO trail towards Virgina. I was all […]

Imagine: a world where human technology is blended harmoniously with the natural world. Imagine, a world where, rather than dominating and controlling nature, we work with it, learn from it, then apply our insights to co-create with it. Together we craft living spaces that amplify our most joyful modes of living. Imagine, living spaces as healthy and beautiful as a […]
We’ve been working hard the last few days taking apart our old Lego-bottle bathroom, and relocating it on the Mukabumi grounds. Basically, our first creation… Failed! The location, the toilet system, the roof… All were not satisfactory. It was after all, one of the first constructions ever using the technique. Of course, the beauty of our […]
This last few days, the Bali Ecobrick team and I are off on an expedition to Bangiwani, West Java. We’ve been meeting community leaders and just regular folks who have no idea about plastic’s dangerous properties. This part of Indonesia reminds me of the Philippines– lush, green, rich culture– and no waste management at all. The folks we […]
Well, it’s been another year around the sun… What a great milepost to review what just happened! Thanks to Derek for the inspirational idea to write a year review. I am going to divide it into three sections:
You can only accomplish/discover/experience as far as you dream.
All the theory about supra-sexual cocreatitve relationships is true! Its possible to channel procreative energy […]
Alrighty! My first art exhibition in two years is almost here.
I am getting reallllly excited about this. Mainly, because it really isn’t “my” art exhibition. In the time since my last exhibitions back in Canada and Europe, my art has changed. Completely. I am not talking about change of painting style, or switch in medium or method. I am […]
Its not often that I get to meet someone with more experience than I in the confluence of bamboo, bikes, and solar all together. However, the other day it happily happened! I was able to drop in to a bamboo bike making workshop featuring renowned bamboo bike master maker, Craig Calfree.

Yesterday we played the world’s first ever game of ultimate with a bamboo disc. It was a dream come true! I have been working slow and steady on the Frisboo design, from the Philippines to Nepal, for the last two years.
Although we’ve played tons with the disc in all sorts of conditions, never before have we taken it to the […]
