          Without a stuffed crocodile hanging from the ceiling, a cabinet of wonders hardly deserves the name. In this, our first posting, we trace the history of this tradition and, following in the footsteps of our famed forebears, we inaugurate our collection with a taxidermy crocodile of our very own.

                Film By Erika Suderburg Music By Eleonor Sandresky 1:31 2014 Wunderkammern: The Private Life of Objects examines acquisition, objects and what a contemporary Wunderkammern might reveal about desire, knowledge, materiality and memory. Fabricated out of objects contained in an existent fifty-year-old Cabinet of Wonders, Wunderkammern: The Private Life of Objects leaves no object untouched, no dust mite comfortable and no item microscopically unexamined. Organized alphabetically for sanity’s sake the film activates a series of associations, arcane, eccentric, playful and expansive. Ever unfolding, yet carefully constructed to facilitate your perusal, Wunderkammern: The Private Life of Objects takes you on tangents yet to be imagined, springs coils tightly wound, unnerves the inanimate and vitalizes cultural detritus. You will look at the objects that surround you with a newfound appreciation, animist suspicion, perspectival acumen and a regained sense of wonder. We invite you to get lost with us.
