Big Bambú: You Can't, You Don't, and You Won't Stop is a piece of installation art by identical twin artists Doug and Mike Starn. Big Bambú had its first installation in the artists' studio in Beacon, New York. From April to October 2010 it was the featured exhibition at the Metropolitan Museum of Art Roof Garden. In 2011 another incarnation of Big Bambú was installed as a collateral exhibition of the 54th Biennale in Venice, Italy. Big Bambú is made of thousands of bamboo poles, lashed together to form a complex structure through which visitors walk on elevated bamboo paths even as a crew continues to build a new part of the structure.
