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.

There used to be these things called 'encyclopedia', which were annually published groups of books about almost everything, like a porn and shopping free, but much heavier internet. This picture came from an encyclopedia, and the caption reads: THE FIERCE GORILLA MEETS AN ANCIENT ENEMY. I  had no idea that gorillas and snakes even knew each other, much less considered each other enemies. And actually, in this picture, they kind of look like they are just talking. Like the Gorilla is saying "Carl, look at my stick. I have a stick." and Carl the snake is thinking "Sigh. Why does Helen the gorilla talk so much about such stupid shit."
