Check out Very Small Objects by Brian Collier, an art project that doubles as an extended Perec-ish joke on classification. His artist's statement explains it well:
"In my projects and installations I combine quasi-scientific techniques of collection, analysis, and categorization with presentation strategies taken from science and natural history museums. I also frequently disrupt or pair these strategies with humor, competing aesthetic frameworks, and attention to moments that do not comfortably fit scientific models."

This is absolutely wonderful. I'm going to measure the scarlet tanager head that I found once in a maritime forest (already dead and detached) and see if it's small enough to qualify!
