Wunderkammer or cabinets of natural curiosities were collections held in an attempt to define the world. They included specimens of plants, animals (sometimes faked), etc. and were precursors to museums.
I asked people taking part and organizing the exhibition this question:
Which fact, feature or product of the earth is able to captivate your mind today?
I used their answers to make drawings paintings and wall pieces.
