Jason Eppink's Catalogue of Creative Triumphs

The Wonder Cabinet began with a series of round table discussions that resulted in a book of short stories about a cabinet of curiosities that exists beyond space and time, using its various caretakers to feed its unending appetite for objects.

A version of the cabinet was then created as a giant, collaborative installation including video peep holes, a fortune teller, and a system for facilitating the creation and sorting of new offerings to the cabinet. My core contribution was a microwave, a spindle of blank DVDs, and a handful of old light bulbs, placed in such a way as to encourage less-than-safe behavior that resulted in a spectacular show of sparks, flames, crackles, and smoke.
