Bamboo

 

Until today, I knew just about nothing about bamboo. I am in a neighborhood library branch talking with a refugee from Burma. Salai worked for the Burmese government in agricultural development, and then for 15 years with the United Nations program on community resource management of remote villages. He tells me certain bamboo species only flower every 50 years. The seed’s fruit, the size of an adult hand, are encased in rich jade-green skin, the flowers drape. After flowering, bamboo die.

Joerg Colberg (Conscientious) and I kicked off the next set of Ping Pong conversations after meeting up in New York during Arts Week.

Joerg: When I came to New York for a couple days about a week ago, I noticed that everybody assumed I had come for the art fairs. The fact that that was not the case resulted in many surprised faces. Maybe the art fairs are a good topic to talk about? Did you go? And if you did, why exactly did you go? What for?
