The beginning of a new film project...

While finishing up the experimental documentary "78rpm" in the beginning stages of a new project.  A film about the curiosity cabinet -- an experimental documentary on curiosity cabinets and filmic celebration of the non-utilitarian pursuit of knowledge.

Plans are still brewing and fermenting, but expect to see the many contemporary incarnations of the curiosity cabinet as well as the film itself becoming something of a "cinematic curiosity cabinet" with brief chapters on a diverse range of intriguing subjects (from magic lantern performances, to the philosophy of shojin ryori cuisine, to an inventory of the private bestiary of Dante Gabriel Rossetti's London abode).

All for now, more to follow.
