What's in Your Cabinet?


For the last few years, Cabinet Magazine, published by the New York-based non-profit Immaterial Incorporated, has brought readers theoretical and artistic investigations into various cultural themes ('Flight' was the last one) bolstered by commissioned visual and audio artworks. A visit to the Cabinet website reveals that they have also been active commissioning works for the web. The most current project, Jackie Goss's 'There There,' is a click-through Flash site that takes visitors on a journey through a history of the mapping of North America. The current collection of nine projects exhibits the same idiosyncratic style as the magazine's print projects, including a narrative about a Balkan village built in Colorado for military exercises and an interactive generator of graphs for universal experiences. -Ryan Griffis
