Named so after the infamous Cheech and Chong Album, this extraordinary two year undertaking by the Starn brothers has to be seen to be believed. Using (currently 2000) bamboo poles the artists and their team of assistants have assembled a continuously morphing structure that moves, envelopes and evolves along the length of their enormous studio. The entire process which involves de constructing the trailing edge and reconstructing the leading edge, is documented, and the resulting photographic montage will show an image of a construction that never existed in its exhibited state.
