If a 50-foot-tall stainless-steel tree falls in Central Park, will anybody believe it? Sited among the park's famous American elms, Roxy Paine's Bluff, a 50-foot-tall stainless-steel tree, stood last spring as a gleaming, perennial fake surrounded by a man-made natural setting that changed with the seasons. For Paine, the process of constructing the tree is most significant--the difficulty of painstakingly creating an object that closely resembles an organic one, and the impossibility of quantifying nature by breaking it down into component parts. Through photographic chapters and schematic diagrams that individually illustrate the tree's large branches, small branch systems, fungus, assembly and installation, this volume acts as a how-to manual, illustrating the process Paine undertook to make Bluff. A Public Art Fund project, Bluff was on view from March through May of last year as part of the 2002 Whitney Biennial.

Roxy Paine: Second NatureRoxy Paine: Second Nature

Published by Contemporary Arts Museum, Houston.
Artwork by Roxy Paine. Edited by Lynn Herbert. Contributions by Joseph Ketner. Text by Gregory Volk, Marti Mayo.

Roxy Paine's conceptual works are provocative, challenging our perceptions and biases through a combination of complex layering, serious humor, romanticism and a touch of irony. Second Nature examines Paine's monumental art-making machines and his naturalistic, botanical environments, exploring how they illustrate a reversal between the artist, whose repetitive processes are machinelike, and machines, which are programmed to emulate human art making.
