Coaster Garden 02 @ Night!
The Coaster Garden has BLOOMED!
Well actually I realised that something needed to be done to dress up and improve the garden as a whole.
As I have *so* many coasters, I figured a few could be spared to make Coaster Flowers!


If you wish to help fertilize my Coaster Garden I have two ways:

1 - You can just click here for details on where and how to send your contribution of CD-ROM(s)

2 - If you don't have any CD-ROM(s) to contribute but wish to give to my cause (Garden crooks DO cost money) you can utilize the click-thru below to make donations

All contributors will be be listed here as patrons of my artwork.
If you wish not to be listed here, please let me know, and I will honour your request.

    What do you do with those ubiquitous Freebie CD-ROMs you get in your mailbox asjunk mail?

    We collectively refer to them as "Coasters" because they're all pretty much good for is to prevent those condensation rings on your furniture from your beverages!

    Most of these 'Freebies' end up in the dustbin, only to clutter up & occupy space in our landfills, where they'll probably will take hundreds to thousands of years to break down under the onslaught of Mother Nature.

    Coasters can also be had from a defective or badly encoded CD-R or CD-RW.

    The full artistic potential to be wrought from the lowly Coaster became apparent during my first trip in 1997 to the Burning Man Festival. There I saw myriad applications of a throwaway product turned into art, decoration, and costuming!

    I had collected a nice stack of these things myself & needed a place to store them. I spindled them on a metal Garden Crook you would use to hang a plant or a lantern. I soon realised that I would need LOTS of coasters to fill up the garden crook! When I completed my first one, I liked what I saw!

    In the process, I'll be doing my small part to help eliminate this needless waste & provide a Sanctuary & Preserve for these poor blighted victims of the Information Age!

    Media Attention!
