“Things of Beauty: Scientific Instruments of Yore…
For more than 30 years, Steve Erenberg has collected early scientific and medical objects and instruments. Packed with shelves and displays brimming with Victorian medical masks, surreal anatomical models, and futuristic test prostheses, Erenberg’s store/museum in Peekskill, New York offers a whirlwind tour of long-forgotten devices. While some items were shams devised by quacks, others represent the best possible treatment for their time. Regardless of its actual function, each item in Erenberg’s collection has a unique aesthetic value.”
On January first NPR aired an interview on their show Science Friday. At the same time there was a beautifully produced video by Luke Groskin that was shot on location and featured on their web page.
