    About The Work

    This photograph by Mike and Doug Starn is from their 2010 installation Big Bambíº: You Can't, You Don't, and You Won't Stop, in which the twin artist duo organized the creation of a labyrinth of bamboo on the roof of the Metropolitan Museum of Art. The installation was a constant work in progress, built throughout the summer, and the pair chose bamboo as their medium for its lightness, its strength, and its changeability in response to light and weather. Doug Starn said, "This piece is organic. It's about all the things in your life, including those that aren't planned."

    This work was included in UnFramed, an exhibition curated by Vik Muniz for ACRIA's 2011 benefit for AIDS research.
