1. I have archived much of my life through collected objects.
2. I have moved a smaller studio, making it necessary that I get rid of a lot of these objects.
3. I have done so by using them as the raw material for one enormous collage, created inside a 30-yard dumpster.
4. Oh, also, I have photographed around 500 of these objects and will display them here, accompanied by a brief history of each item.

The ultimate trophy of my adolescence. Yes, yes, it should have been some girl's panties or something to do with the State finals, but it isn't. It's this: a skateboard truck ground so far down that the axle is ultimately exposed and then structurally compromised. Pride is a fool's emotion, but if I'm proud of anything, it is this.
