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.

When I was 13 I bought a skateboard at the Farmer's Market Flea Market in Bethesda, Md.  It was a G&S Stacey Peralta model with Gullwing trucks and big Bowl Roll wheels. The condition was pristine and it was $20. I rode it for over a dozen years. One day I was playing stickball with Donovan in the East Village and he struck me (again) out and I got pissed and threw my board. This chunk of the nose chipped off and I felt stupid for doing that so I kept it.
