This cabinet is based off of a fascination with Ted Kaczynski, who's cabin was found a few hours from my home in MT. I was also interested in the periodic table, and used this work to catalogue the more dangerous elements that live with us in our day to day life.

Extra thanks to Theodore Grey, author of Elements: A Visual Exploration of Every Known Atom in the Universe, who so generously loaned me items from his collection.
