BEAVERS and SCULPTURE

BEAVERS- and a 40 Foot HIGH Bamboo Structure 
This past Thanksgiving weekend it was discovered in our pond that a beaver had moved in and was building ,rather quickly, a huge damn at one end of our pond . . .the weakest end and therefore he must be removed as quickly as possible!! . . . .but. . . . .
 how does one do this? We set the ''Have a Heart' traps but no luck  . . .each morning there he was slapping his tail at us as we poked about his damn DAMN.!! 


I think this calls for a new RUG DESIGN . . . and a telephone call to the BEAVER CATCHER before the pond washes away! . . .boy oh boy . . . .and I thought RACOONS were difficult to deal with . . . . . .

For some strange reason this  Beaver Damn  . . oops! .or ...
 I should say . . . .SCULPTURE or STRUCTURE . . .it just reminded me of a damn . . . .go see it  if you can I hear its amazing to walk inside . . . 





Twins Doug and Mike Starn's Monumental Bamboo Installation:

 "Big Bambú" On The Roof Garden of The Metropolitan Museum of Art



''Doug and Mike Starn’s 40-foot high bamboo structure exemplifies what I always say about artists that do design-y type installations. It’s important to go big. 
The installation should always overwhelm the viewer so that the viewer feels the effect of the artwork. And that may mean that the artist needs to work for days, months on the project to get it large enough. A lot of young installation artists should heed this advice, I think.''
