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 directed a promotional commercial where I animated on a chalkboard. At the end of the shoot, I got to keep the chalkboard. It is amazing how much dust using a chalkboard generates inside a small apartment. When I moved to Brooklyn in 2002, the slate was relegated to our  roof deck where we thought it would host civilized games of pictionary accompanied by moderately priced wine. Instead it fell victim to the elements rather quickly. Shortly thereafter I removed the hinges. To use. For something.


  1. Hinge clamp. Use for screen printing. This type of hinge is actually still manufactured and sold for just this purpose. They haven't needed to change the design at all.
