Long Island City: The Wonder Cabinet, an experiment in collaborative story writing and contemporary wunderkammer. An eclectic group of artists – sculptors, costumers, video artists, holographers, and more – have physically constructed a gigantic cabinet of wonders in the Flux gallery responding to the story, including a maze of rooms, drawers to open and explore, a ziggurat-staircase, a photo booth, a plinko game, and installations that activate different parts of the gallery.
