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.

One late night in 1997, Noah and I were enjoying a beer at a bar on 7th ave and 18th street. I can't remember the name. Noah asked me what color electricity was.
"It's yellow", I answered.
"No," said Noah, "It's blue."
We decided to ask the waiter what color she thought electricity was. I don't remember the counter-stake, but if she said yellow, Noah and I would rent a car and drive to Atlantic City immediately.
The motel we stayed at offered a free continental breakfast. We did not partake, as we were not nearly out of bed at 10am.  And yes, electricity is as yellow as this unused voucher.
