Cabinet of Ocular Obscurities references the grotesque sideshow or museum displays of biological abnormalities. The cabinet displays ocular objects that range from antique 1950s artificial glass eyes, manufactured specifically as prosthetic replacements for eyes lost, often through the trials of war, to fabricated creatures with human eyes. These fantastic creatures seem to peer out through obscured specimen bottles making it difficult to see them.
