“The Cabinet of Curiosity” “Derive ideas from the world around you, from your own background, from your childhood, from relationships with others, from social and political environment. Don’t be confined to a pond…in which the water is always in danger of becoming stagnant.” Ken Garland
The Brief: In the same way that certain artists attempt to capture experiences, or ephemeral moments of time in their work, as in the boxes of Joseph Cornell and animations of the Brother Quay, you are required to use your personal experiences to build a cabinet of curiosity or shrine. This does not have to be a literal physical cabinet but can be virtual, physical or static. In the first instance you should collect written and visual information based around your personal experiences and interests.
