Nauman made a series of tunnel works in wood and plaster, which he subsequently cast in iron. In this work, three tunnels frustratingly fail to intersect and lead nowhere. Propped up on steel supports, they seem to float in space as if they existed in a parallel universe. The artist has commented 'I find triangular spaces really uncomfortable, disorientating kinds of spaces, not like a circle or a square that give you security.'
