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 went to Tilden Junior High School in Maryland. We had a shop teacher there, his name was something that began with 'mister'. I don't remember. I only know he is dead now. While I am ostensibly saddened by his passing, I have to admit the very human tendency to pit his existence against my relative life experience. By that I mean: I do not mourn the loss of value added to our shared experience provided by my former shop teacher; instead, I mourn the loss of time left I have on this earth as indicated by the demise of  one associated with a temporal hallmark of my existence.
Look, my narcism isn't the point here. The point is, Rayfield Wright reminds me of my shop teacher from Tilden Junior High. Mister-something.


  1. Oh...this is going to bother me until I remember his name. I do remember him singing "every time you go away, you take a piece of meat with you..." Wait - was it Mr. Thomas?

  2. Wendy! That's it! It was Mr. Thomas.

  3. Great Project. Love it. funny comment "Craig Morton looks like Neil Diamond." hell yeah!He was actually the Dallas Cowboys quarterback before Roger Staubach and the Staubach beat him out for # 1 QB spot. He didn't do that good for the Giants.
    Anyway, again Great Piece. I hope I can get over to see it one day.
