The darwin table really stood out to me. It most of all I think was unavoidably the most noticable peice in the space. It was more than just a picture on a wall, or a movie. It took up space, and things that take up space get noticed. I really liked the idea of it. the specimen jars that did not contain specimens, but rather, a sort of connection to the specimen by way of the video. It was clearly a message to me about not wasting out natural resources, he can make use of them without killing, or ruining things. The weirdest one was the eyes jar. It didn't seem to fit with the rest, which basically encompassed whole animals. But this was just eyes. The linking of humanity to wildlife and nature? eyes are the windows to the soul.
