A Wunderkammer is a classification device that emphatically resists classification. It occupies a liminal netherworld between furniture and room, between the natural and the artificial, between the intimate and the universal.
This collection, like the Wunderkammer it considers, is neither monograph, nor catalog, nor book. In three volumes – Collecting, Recording, and Translating – this hybrid collection considers the content and ethos of a Wunderkammer designed by Case Studio VOGT.
COLLECTING Engaging directly with the physical world, picking up specimens, living or not, bringing them home and organizing them, rationally or not. Discovering ever more tangential relations between them.
RECORDING Putting the tools, methods, and devices that mediate our perception of the landscape to work in the context of field trips. Acknowledging and harnessing the subjective human experience of landscape.
TRANSLATING Instrumentalizing idiosyncratic learnings and insights, uncovering the febrile connections between them, and building the common ground upon which they may experience the most unsuspected yet productive and specific syntheses.

Noonday limited edition
The artist Annelies Štrba, best known for photographs of her children, now brings us in Noonday pictures of her grandchildren. In this “noonday dream” (a reference to Emily Brontë), we encounter a host of fairytale creatures, playing, sleeping, or dreaming. The viewer is drawn in and becomes part of this reverie, which is interspersed with images of everyday family life, travel, and game-playing. While the images in the artist’s previous series, Shades of Time (1997), were raw and direct, Noonday glows with the ease of a summer afternoon and yet still leaves us with the melancholy certainty that the days of childhood pass by much too fast.
