Big Bambu: You Can't, You Don't and You Won't Stop...

Remarkable...the Big Bambu installation on the roof of The Metropolitan Museum of Art through October 31. The structure, the brainchild of Mike and Doug Stam, twin brothers from New Jersey born in 1961. Measuring 100 feet long, 50 feet wide and 50 feet high takes the form of a cresting wave. Constructed over the course of the spring, summer and now moving into the fall by the brothers and a team of rock climbers is set against the beauty of Central Park and the city scape and takes on the energy and complexity of an ever-changing organism.
