Cabinet of Curiosity

Cabinet assembled by Shelly Wyn-De-Bank for her exhibition, Self and Other at The Toilet Gallery.



"Experiencing a sense of wonder in all kinds of things in the world. Discovering new and extreme examples of the natural and the man-made. Making connections across the whole field of human knowledge. Experimenting with arranging, re-arranging and classifying parts of the world (and the connections between them) in many different ways." This definition for Cabinet of Curiosity came from www.curiosity.org.uk/whatisa.htm Also have a look at this Cabinet of Curiosity by Vik Muniz and then if you still want to see more check out this group on flickr.
