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 got this book when I visited Indonesia in 1997. I could never figure out if the '303' was an indication of the publishing catalogue number, or if this book contains the amount of knowledge one needs to carry on three-hundred-and-three conversations.


  1. Great idea! -M. Rizzo

  2. 303 'basic' conversations at that. I wonder what constitutes a basic conversation, and what pushes the realm over to advanced? I bet this question would fall into the category of expert. If anyone responds, that is, and promotes it from a question to a conversation. Is anyone listening anymore? What?
