What is a Cabinet of Curiosities?
The idea has its inspiration from 14th century Europe with the rarity- or curio-gallery. It arose during an “era of astonishment” — the Renaissance — an age when art and science developed together. The collections then contained both natural products and artefacts, and were not separated into categories of art or science. The selected objects were presented in fancy showcases, similar to cupboards and furniture. The whole installation was seen as “Theatrum mundi”, a general view on the whole world and human understanding.
About the Art/Science Residency Programme
This event is organized by the Arts & Creativity Lab of the Interactive & Digital Media Institute to help promote the arts among university students. As part of the programme, five international artists each do a one-month residency, specializing in one of the four themes — quantum physics, water, biology and acoustic ecologies.
The programme is funded by the National Arts Council, and Ruhland’s residency is supported by the Centre for Quantum Technologies.
