“There are endless possibilities as to what a website could be. What kind of room is a website? Or is a website more like a house? A boat? A cloud? A garden? A puddle? Whatever it is, there’s potential for a self-reflexive feedback loop: when you put energy into a website, in turn the website helps form your own identity.” — Laurel Schwulst

Cabinet of Curiosities models a website after the practice of 16th century origin by the same name. An early form of exhibition that displayed objects belonging to natural history—the term “cabinet” referred to a room, rather than a piece of furniture. Creating a series of cryptic diagrams, pseudo-scientific in nature, my website emulates it’s model by digitally housing these specimens.
