This is the gear shift handle from my dream car: a 1986 cornflower blue Volvo 240 wagon. It was a four speed that had a push button overdrive, kind of like a fifth-gear (the square hole is where the button was). Much like the idea of a push-button fifth gear, everything else with car ultimately went cockamamie. It finally broke down for good one day on the Brooklyn-Queens Expressway. That was in 2007. I haven't owned a car since.
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.
