Cabinet of 糅物誌
"The ideation of CABINET OF has started from a secret box hides in the drawer. People and object are closely interrelated in such a material world.
CABINET OF believes the function of the object beyond practicality, it is also about possession and desire. The object is ‘abstracted from its function and thus brought into relationship with the subject’ (Baudrillard,1968). In the perspective of ‘possession’, the object is seems as a vessel for storing times and sentiment. Perhaps, most of us have a secret box for preserving ordinary things with exceptional significance.
CABINET OF is a semi-yearly thematic publication about people and object. It tells the stories of various individuals through the objects they chose to preserve, disclosing the multiple motivations that triggered them to safeguard.
