I hope I'm not duplicating something elsewhere. But driving home today, it occurred to me that the Cargo Cult image brings up the fake bamboo airplanes and other emblems, but what about the rest of the "cargo" - the good stuff left behind as trash?
Tin drums (containers) become tin drums (muscial instruments).
Bathtubs become feeding troughs.
Bean cans become roofing (flattened and hammered).
Old clothes become quilts, or tents, when pieced together...
Obviously I am thinking too much about BM, much I think this is valid. I'm gonna incorporate (by necessity, due to budget) as many re-purposed things as possible.
