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.
MARSH WHEELING BOX OF SPRINGS
19.0 x 6.0 x 14.5 cm Marsh Wheeling is an American cigar company, founded 1840. They do not make switch plates, even though 'switch plates' is what is listed on this Marsh Wheeling box. Inside the Marsh Wheeling box marked 'switch plates' are springs. Springs are not switch plates. There's a lot going on here. Randy gave me this cigar box labeled 'switch plates' that is full of springs.
