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.
4.3 x 7.2 x 1.7cm My oldest friend Kacy is Iranian. This pack of smokes is likely from one of his stepfather's trips back to the motherland. Cigarette packaging can be very beautiful, and I think that when it is in a language I can't read, it just ends up being prettier; a lovelier shade of lipgloss on that particular pig.
