After playing around and making ‘Cocyea’ birds from palm fronds, why not try with discarded alminum strips that were found thrown away at a local roofing contractor. These Flocking Birds a on a pedestal of metal as they get ready to spread their wings to take flight into the forest.
Annoying to see how many single use plastic bottles are thrown away in Grenada, as there is no re-cycling program. So a collecting with the help of the restaurant staff at Laluna was underway. Hence the creation of this plastic bottle Medusa (Jellyfish) that sways in the wind in the Enchanted Forest. Entrapped in its tentacles of stripped plastic bottles, are small red aluminum fish.
With such a successful collection and up-cycling of plastic bottles at Laluna, the Spirit of the Forest came alive as this installation explodes from the earth and sweeps through the trees, once again connecting to itself underground. As a feeling of wind that we can see with the use of these blue bottles, it gives us a sense of freedom and movement.
Another by-product of a roofing contractor, these metal discs were a used for transporting the metal sheeting for aluminum roofs.
What a wonderful opportunity to up-cycle into inspirational life messages, that sway in the
Enchanted Forest. Aptly called Life Savers, not only for their colourful shapes, but of their messages that can truly be a life saver.
