The Starns’s Big Bambu

Big Bambu

Big Bambu, the massive installation by the artists Mike and Doug Starn, is green is every sense of the word. It’s green, literally. It’s made from one of the most sustainable materials around. And it’s even recyclable. The original 50 foot tall sculpture, which was assembled from a network of 2000 bamboo poles at the former Talix Foundry in Beacon, New York, was reconfigured into a T for the cover of our 5th anniversary issue. And it recently moved to the roof of the Metropolitan Museum where it will be on view from April 27 through October 31.
