blue rope John Dahlsen

Having just breezed through Earth Day, what better time to introduce you to John Dahlsen, the environmental artist.  All of his “paintings,” sculptures, and installation art are made from rubbish, ropes, flip flops, plastics and essentally garbage
that he finds along Australian beaches.  His series of plastic bag composed ‘paintings’ can easily pass for an oil or acrylic abstract, except they are serving to reduce garbage while decorating your walls.  His award winning installation piece Thong Totem cleared the beaches of old flip flops, if just for that day. Giving us something to look at while reminding us every so tactfully that we are destroying the planet. Promoting awareness while further demonstrating that art makes the world a better place, and not just ideally.

    Wow, this was a really quality post. In theory I’d like to write like this too – taking time and real effort to make a good article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a lot and never seem to get something done.

    I am impressed, I have to say. Very rarely do I see a blog that’s both informative and entertaining, and let me tell you, you have hit the nail on the head. Your idea is outstanding; the issue is something that not many people are talking intelligently about. I am really happy that I stumbled across this in my search for something relating to this.

    Incredible write-up. Did you study the related piece within the Huffington Post a while back? It seems that increasingly more mainstream media are having to pay consideration to this. I hope your web site gets more and more subscribers as this issue gets more coverage, because it is a superb useful resource.

    Comparing a game’s performance between the iPhone 4 and the Nexus One is a terrible gauge of Android’s gaming abilities. The Nexus One’s GPU is well established as being inferior to that of other high-end Android phones in 3D performance. Even the Droid 1, despite having a lower clocked CPU, has a superior PowerVR GPU, which enables far better 3D performance on the Droid 1 over the Nexus One. Between the Droid phones and the Samsung Galaxy lines, there’s plenty of capable 3D hardware for Android.

  • discounted maximuscle cyclone

    Cyclone [Maximuscle]: Used it for 2 months and noticed good results after first 10 days of working hard in gym. I find it a good alternative to measuring out creatine and protein mix seperately but hey these products are all about convenience right I take it for brekky each day but it takes discipline to not still snack as it doesnt fill you up by any means. I feel more full if mix it with a banana, glass of fresh orange, 1 activia and 1 actimel each morning. It takes about 5 mins and makes me feel healthy but who knows. Good luck.
