Untitled (Log with Model of the Universe), 2005

Tree trunk and spotlights
Collection Ginette Moulin / Guillaume Houzé, Paris
Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin, Paris

In Untitled (Log with Model of the Universe), Peter Coffin offers us an allegory of the world as physicists and mathematicians imagine it. Given concrete form in a hollowed-out tree trunk in which colored spotlights worthy of a discotheque turn round and round, the allegory reuses in a trivial way the graphs that scientists employ to illustrate the relationship between third and fourth dimensions. Nature and culture collide here in a put-on that assumes a very serious mien.
