If you happen to be in New York before October 31st and it’s not pouring rain, you must visit the exhibit on the rooftop of  The Metropolitan Museum of Art called Big Bambu.  I had no idea what I would find, so you can imagine my wide-eyed surprise upon emerging from the elevator to see thousands of bamboo poles (actually 5500 so far according to the artist Mike Starn) lashed together with nylon mountain climbing rope to walk under, around, over and between.
