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.

My mom dated a guy when I was in high school named Miles. He was short and squinty eyed and the happiest man I had ever met. He and my mom used to take the living room chairs in our house, turn them upside down, sit on the floor and rest their backs against the angle they made. They'd do this and watch golf together. Then one day Miles killed himself. There were 400 people at his funeral; not-a-one saw it coming.
Miles gave me this little screwdriver set, and frankly, it has always been kind of useless.


  1. He was happyish. i don't remember that part about the chairs. Do you have a shard of glass from the coffee table? That would have been worth keeping, with a piece of the popcorn.

  2. This is one of the funniest things I have ever read in my entire life.
