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.

From 1995 until 2000 I lived at 81 Second avenue in the East Village with Richard Egan. One Halloween, his mom sent him an enormous bag of sweet-tarts. Months later, Rich and I began planting the individual packages amidst each other's personal effects: in a shoe or pinned inside the hem of one's pants. An undeclared war had organically formed. This is the last known munition of that war.

  1. I am Richard Egan (Not Switzerland.) I willingly participated in the Sweet Tart Wars. Congress was not consulted. The Arabs are mad (per usual.) Documents were burned. I cannot wait to get back in the arena. They don't understand me here. War is...sweet and sour.
