A Cabinet Of Curiosities

All of these objects belong to me or are from my household and in their way form a portrait of the artist through their associated meanings. Objects can say a lot about the person who owns them so I carefully chose objects that say something about where we are now and how technology has also rapidly made a lot of objects obsolete in recent history. In effect the collection of objects make up a 21st Century Cabinet of Curiosities that reflects my cultural background and the associated values and significance of the objects.
