Hello everyone, thank you for sharing your time with me.
My name is Sebasto Oro.
I would like to invite you to dive into my words. Divine of my world, if you will.
I am about to share with you how I got to “recycle” my life.
Upon reflecting on many aspects of life, I began to see how the concept
of recycling is a coherent strategy found in nature. I grew up in Silesia,
the most industrial region of Poland, and during an era of big changes.
Throughout my life I have had a great interest in the impact of the growing
human population on nature. A few years ago, I learned about ‘Earthships’;
one of the most versatile, economical and eco-friendly designs for off-grid
dwellings. I fell in love with them. Recently, I applied to the Earthship Academy
and got accepted. I am now looking for creative and sustainable ways to fund
my education. I came to the conclusion that I must recycle my life to do so.
Being an immigrant, I have been exposed to many faces of isolation. I have had
a wide gamut of life experiences, great and traumatic, yet all the while being
an artistic soul and Jack of many trades. The question that I bring to myself
is how do I re-cycle and circulate my life experiences to support my learning
about Earthships, which like my life and creative inspiration, are also made
of recyclable materials?
I would like to offer for sale, prints of my photographs and other art media
and create a ‘go fund me’ donation website. I hope that with your generosity
I can fulfill my calling, and complete the Earthship Academy. Upon graduation,
I would like to build Earthships in under-served communities and use the space
to hold workshops for people to learn how to recycle their pasts to build fulfilling
I look forward to connecting with those individuals and organizations
who find intersecting concepts between their future plans and those ideas here,
of recycling life inside and out.
