Big Bambú at the Metropolitan Museum of Art

by Ken HarmanPosted on

Debuting later this month on the 27th, identical twin brothers Mike and Doug Starn will begin the thirteenth consecutive single-artist installation on the Roof Garden of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Comprised of 5,000 thirty to forty foot long freshly cut bamboo poles and fifty miles of nylon rope, Big Bambu will be continuously evolving through the fall as the Starn brothers, assistants and a group of rock climbers slowly create a cresting wave rising over the Roof Garden. Guided tours into and through the structure will be available to the general public as the sculpture grows. Pictures of a Starn brother’s bamboo sculpture from 2008 below.
