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.

So Frank was this friend of Steve's who came to visit Steve in 1992,our freshman year in college. Frank crashed with Steve in his dorm room for about a fortnight. Frank was clean-cut and strange. He spoke of his aspiration to do heroin, but knew he couldn't afford it as a lifestyle, unless he was able to procure another social security number. Frank introduced me to marijuana. Then one day he was gone.
About a week later he returned and told me he had a big surprise for me, something he was certain would be of use in my artistic pursuit. I remember him making  kind of  an atypical production of it, for a man of his mellow. He said: "And for you I got...." then he  produced this plastic bag and with a big smile continued: "...a bag of glass discs!"
He held it up next to his face, one hand holding the top, the other cupping the bottom of the bag, like a commercial presentation, and I remember thinking: 'Wow. What the fuck and I going to do with a bag of glass discs?'


  1. I think they could have made a lovely bottom for a large mermaid statue. But we'll settle for this.


  2. snagged a box of 4x4" mirrored tiles from a catering gig. what a great wall display they will be. turned too quickly at corner of 10th ave & 44th street and they poured out of their box; raining upon the sidewalk, shattering in a dramatic explosion. it was 3am and no one seemed to notice. i fled the scene guilty and relieved.
