A British Artist Builds an Island With Waste in Mexico

By  | 

IslandcHave you ever wondered if you can ever create your own world?In the waters of Isla Mujeres, the “Island of Women”, near Cancun, A British artist Richart “Rishi” Sowa has shocked the world after creating his own floating island on the Gulf of Mexico…The artist has a long history in trying to recreate, land and his love for Islands

I love the way he thinks, it’s innovative. People saying he is crazy but always fail to realize there is a lot to learn from him. I am definitely sure that he does not care what you think. He built his own island with nature in his best interest, can we get the guts to think that up and go ahead? I ask myself. He has focused positively on island formation and land recreation. Using physical techniques to cope with the conditions in order to grow more and better vegetation throughout the year supporting his island, a place he calls home.

He’s first Island was destroyed by a hurricane in 2005; a replacement, Joyxee Island, It’s opened for tours in August, 2008. The new island was initially 20 metres (66ft) in diameter, which has since expanded to 25 metres (82 ft), and plants and mangroves are already growing on it. It contains about 100,000 bottles.

The new island has three beach fronts, a house, two ponds, a solar-powered waterfall and river, a wave-powered washing machine, a communication system and solar panels.  A group of volunteers helped him with the project. Sowa will continue to make improvements to the Island, so it will always be a work of art in progress.

Other things installed in the house are improvised, including a complete kitchenette, modified air condition which uses the sea waves to produce the desire cooling in the house and a shower and hand wash basin, all these care designed to use natural energy, therefore eliminating the use of imported power source.

IslanddThe long forgotten agronomic floating gardens in scientific terms are used all over the world in places like, Bangladesh, China, Japan and in the low lying areas, the floating gardens rather known as “rafts” can be moved from place to place so they are suitable for those that have temporarily or permanently lost their homes and land.

The floating gardens are very productive therefore duplication of replicas layouts used, can produce the most productive farming systems ever developed. If these can be done a rich agricultural district will be borne in areas like Malindi and Lamu where many of the dwellers stay basking the sun off,  Flower, fruits and vegetables can do well in it.

    Everything composed made a great deal of sense.
    However, what about this? suppose you were to write a killer title?
    I am not saying your content is not solid., however suppose you
    added something that grabbed folk’s attention? I mean A
    British Artist Builds an Island With Waste in Mexico – Naitreads is a little boring.
    You should glance at Yahoo’s home page and note how they create post headlines to
    get people interested. You might try adding a video or a picture or two to get people interested
    about everything’ve written. In my opinion, it could make your website a little bit more interesting.
