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.

In 1997, I went to Indonesia. They were in the middle of an election. This is a pamphlet promoting General Suharto's party, the-then-long-reigning semi-benevolent dictatorship (Golongan Karya, referred to as 'Golkar'). Though his particular form of rule promoted a questionable civil liberty policy at best, his party did employ some very handsome graphic design.
