"Wundernet" invokes curiosity cabinets of the seventeenth century as closets harbouring the strange objects that inhabit online spaces. This site positions digital objects and preoccupations in a relation to baroque space, arts and sciences. A baroque network of knowledge, materiality, memory and passion, provides a different genealogy for the digital affects seeping through current online art. Recalling the specimen cabinets of display that housed objects from the natural history of baroque science, wundernet offers us new insights into contemporary information science as a space in which digital objects are related and entwined with each other rather than simply stored and retrieved.
