This installation proiject interested me for a few reasons. There is the recycling component. He used 65,000 CDs. That is a lot of CDs. It is at Longwood Gardens, a place we visited a lot growing up. I know we went whenever Grandpa B. was in town because he loved flower gardening. SAnd, it is a tribute to the platterlike big waterlillies which I think look cool.
Bruce Munro, British artist and light designer, created "Waterlillies" using 200 foam discs of varying size covered in CDs which reflect the hues of the surrounding landscape and the constantly changing light patterns. I would like to see this during a full moon! And, don't worry, he plans to reuse the CDs in other work, not just toss them after the installation.

Endangered Grey-headed Flying Foxes at the Ashburton Wildlife Shelter are served a special blend of fruit juices. They are a bit pampered by Bev Brown who runs the shelter. The Grey-headed Flying Fox is a megabat native to Australia that feeds on pollen, nectar and fruit. They have cute faces. Fact.
