With a nod to natural history collections, the drawers in Coffer invite viewers to experience a different type of specimen. Each drawer offers an individual arrangement of artifacts that blends human figures with insects and birds, historical illustrations with modern photographs and paper cutouts with entomological pins and thread.
Coffer is a set of nine wooden drawers of varying widths and depths. The drawers protrude off the wall and the audience is encouraged to view them both from afar and up close, where they can open each drawer to reveal its interior. When installed as a unit, the approximate dimensions are 30 inches by 50 inches by 16 inches (depth).
