“I am applying the principles of Mandalic Collaborative Manifestation to power deep regenerative solutions and innovations.”  –®


Russell is an artist and inventor working with regenerative principles.  Currently based in Indonesia, he is one of the leaders of the global Ecobrick movement and one of the founders of the Global Ecobrick Alliance.  Inspired by the power of mandalic collaboration and his time amongst the Igorot people he works to implementing deep, transformative innovations.  With ecobricks, Russell is focused on putting ‘waste’ back into cycles of indefinite enrichment or ‘ayyew’.  Meanwhile, moving forward with innovations that, using natural materials and ancestral manual traditions, are fully open source, non-capital, and transcend waste, petroleum and factories all together.  You can read more in his Regenerative Design Manifestoand theory of Mandalic Colloborative Manifestation
