Cabinet of Curiosities
Humour
This Cabinet of Curiosity is meant as a critic, to think about consumerism. It gives an insight of my „hidden gems“, blisterpacks from around the world, to all of you. As a romantic idea in the 19th century a cabinet of curiosity or Wunderkammer used to be a collection of bizarre objects, usually brought from travelling abroad. Similar to this, my collection of blisterpacks, show as manifesto of consumerism and an expressive juxtapostion to design and nature’s lifecycle. As an underlying idea in this demolished consumer world of strange wonders, it’s not meant to take part in a lifecycle, but to entertain as trash. Even this has to end, so we recycle it by showing it againandagainandagain…., which is in reverse a kind of melancholic sustainabilty. Isn’t it bizarre, is it any wonder, what kind of strange blisterpacks are thought about, designed, mass-produced, sold - you won‘t believe it if you don’t see it. So here‘s your exclusive insight in our Cabinet of Curiosity’s, which is actually our german Cologne-based studio‘s entrance-wall, fully pinned with objects of desire. So enjoy and have fun exploring, get inspired and choose your own personal favourite… Nevertheless it’s a swansong on consumerism as we knew it much too long.

Computer tabs are a hygienic-nightmare and this dust-monster seems out of control.

Accessories can become patriotic statements, as this fashionable detail for knee-highs, Kniestrumpf, shows. Mary would have adored it.

Holding back the yeaaars…oooops, …hair. It must be love, especially if it’s simply red.
