In their Beacon studio, twin brothers Mike and Doug Starn house their massive installation Big Bambú. Utilizing over 2,000 bamboo poles, the artists have created an extraordinarily intricate network system that bridges architecture and performance. The installation continues to evolve and adapt in the vein of a living, self-healing organism as the work takes on a life of its own, rather than a static creation directly from the artist.
According to the Starn brothers, Big Bambú is connotative of an autonomous, spontaneous, self-governing, disorganized network responding to itself to better navigate the environment. “It represents me – in that I am who I was, and, I am completely different than I was when I was a little boy,” Doug Starn writes.
