For an artist whose practice is predicated on the somewhat subversive, it’s no surprise that Peter Coffin would stack a playlist with Miles Davis and Kraftwerk and Tonto’s Expanding Headband. Like his selections, Coffins’s works evoke many a mood—whether with his outdoor Cloud installations or oversize taxidermy animal sculptures or slow-motion videos. For those times when you don’t know where you want to go but want the journey to inspire you, listen up.
