Cabinetlandia

Out in the desert, next to a dirt road, is a mailbox, and a file cabinet wedged into a low, fake hillside. The file cabinet contains back issues of the arty magazine "Cabinet" and, at one point, a guest book, snacks, and a pair of boots to ward off rattlesnakes. One question you may want to ask when you arrive: what if rattlesnakes are in the file cabinet? The file cabinet has been out here since 2005. The magazine has been around since 2000, and really should have changed its name to "File Cabinet" to compliment the art installation.
