Pennsylvania-based artist Mark Dion is an artist whose installations explore ideas of scientific taxonomy, naturalist collection, curation, and exhibition, from museums to cabinets of curiosity. His most recent show, at New York City's Tanya Bonakdar Gallery, has just closed but fortunately his Web site and Flickr stream contains a slew of images from his various projects.
