The industry of bamboo scaffolding is dying; there is not only a diminishing supply of raw material, but also a lack of new blood that are willing to work for the industry. If we do not learn to appreciate the skill and knowledge, this craft may one day disappear.
But there is no other place that does scaffolding like Hong Kong, and through engaging bamboo masters to collaborate and create a contemporary artpiece, we hope to explore future possibilities for this craft.
