This biography from the Archives of AskART:
In 2004, a work titled Breach by Roxy Paine was installed on the campus of the University of Nebraska, Lincoln as an addition to the sculpture collection of the Sheldon Memorial Art Gallery.   It is an "asymetrical form with broken branches and limbs that bend back in close proximity to one another . . ., appears scared, perhaps damaged by lightning or high wind.   And, in sporting both fungus that indicates a weakened state and healthy branches, Breach can be seen as being about both life and death."

The work is intended to encourage meditation and thoughts about the relationship of human beings to nature and is "simultaneously part of the landscape and antithetical to that landscape. . .also stimulates thought on the natural and the artificial, and the extent to which the campus landscape is also a human intervention."

Paine created the trunk in Brooklyn and assembled the branches from thousands of pieces of stainless steel and tubing in his studio in upstate New York.  The parts were shipped to the University campus and assembled by the artist.
