Between Order and Disorder is an ongoing project that reexamines the concept of the wunderkammer and contemplates the relationship of re/collected objects as collections are made and unmade. Between Order and Disorder began in 2018 as a summer residency in Borland Project Space at the Pennsylvania State University with the intention to create a collaborative cabinet of curiosities in the project space turned lab, classroom, office, and studio. Purposefully, the project was never static, and the space was in a state of being-made throughout the 14-week residency and 2-week exhibition. The closing reception indicated a transition to the project becoming unmade. To unmake the project, objects in the collection were de-accessioned, given away, and otherwise dispersed. Some items remain together, but most items were re/collected by visitors and participants, free of charge.
The project continues as a website and Instagram account, and it will manifest tactility as new venues are pursued.
