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.

I bought these 'siagerets' in Indonesia in 1997. That's when I visited my friend Josh and learned the phrase 'Jam Karet', which means 'Rubber Time'; things occur according to a relative schedule in Indonesia. It's like Italy, except with a more stable government.
