Incredible bamboo sculptures by Tetsunori Kawana

West meets East in these incredible bamboo sculptures by Tetsunori Kawana. Each huge structure in the Denver Botanic Garden is elegantly curved and winding. They were constructed by a painstaking process of splitting and bending each piece of bamboo. The installation is a growing changing thing. Though the bamboo is no longer living, it changes with the seasons, age, and weather. A gradual shift occurs as is begins drying out and changing color. Kawana’s attempt at recreating and manipulating nature is a fascinating concept
