'Cabinet' is a work about the need for order and classification, about randomness and likeness, and about the continuum of forms.

It is made of 256 expanded polyestiren figures, randomly (de)formed by the action of heat, each of them about 8 x 8 cm in size. They are arranged in a 16 x 16 grid according to similarity, in an attempt to bring some sort of rule or classification to the unpredictable diversity of their organic forms. The resulting 'taxonomy' is just one among countless possible.

The title of the work is the French word for "a small exhibition room" or the collection of specimens exhibited in it.
