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 first met Ed Schmidt when I was 10 years old. He was a counselor at Camp Dudley, a summer camp I attended for 6 years. Ed is now a playwright in Brooklyn. He has a rather bespoke take on the craft; several of his plays have been hosted in his home. His current project is called 'My Last Play'. The idea is that you come and see this play in his living room (an audience of about 12), and when it is over, you take with you one of his books. When Ed is out of books, the show will close, and Ed will be done with writing plays. It is a stunningly crafted deaccession. Put another way, an artful fuck you.
This is the book I took with me. 'Religious Drama' seemed too redundant a phrase to pass up. It just seemed too redundant a phrase to pass up.
