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 previous tenant that inhabited the studio I am leaving, the tenant right before me, was  a guy named Gus who owned a hot dog cart. It is impossible to whittle down the Gus chronicles to a single blog, much less a single blog entry. By way of overview: Gus is my age, a greek guy who "likes philosophy and art and stuff", but could not comprehend any occupation that didn't prioritize making the money. Gus weaved a tome of tales from his simultaneous life as a tenement landlord, marine biologist and cart-op. This is the one physical thing he left with me, saying "You know, maybe you could use it for your art or something."
