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.
THIN GILLETTE BLADE
4.4 x 2.4 x 1 cm I found this in a toolbox my grandfather owned. I don't know how old it is, but it seems to be from an age when common objects were considered with a design sense that didn't feel the need to validate themselves to the everyman market by dumbing away from that faggy thing called aesthetics. I think that time is called the '60's, or France.
