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.

I was having brunch in the East Village about a dozen years ago and I saw this phone placed inside an open trash can. My guess it was stolen and ditched. I picked it up, made a single phone call, I think just to tell someone I was calling from a cell phone I found in the trash, then delivered it to the local police station. 6 months later, having not been claimed, it was mailed to me. So I guess technically, this is my first ever cell phone.
