Abstract:

"Like the first museums of the 17th century, the fantastic array of exhibits at the Museum of Jurassic Technology suggests a modern-day 'cabinet of curiosities,' filled with juxtapositions of the genuine, the strange, and the truly unexplainable. As its founder, David Wilson reveals 'We like experiences that break the hard shell of certainty.' Inhaling the Spore explores how this remarkable museum inspires us to wonder at the marvels of man and nature...and wonder whether any of it could possibly be true."--Container.
