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.


20.8 x 15.5 x 3.0 cm
From 2002 until 2009 I lived along a part of Brooklyn's Atlantic Avenue that plays host to many Muslim shops. This is a photograph of Mecca set against a sky interlaced with that miniscule fiber optic cable; when plugged in, the sky would undulate with gentle waves of tiny magic light dots. At least that is how it appeared in the window. I bought it for $12, brought it home, plugged it in and: nothing. I could never get it to work. Maybe it sensed my infidelness.
