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.
TOY ADDING MACHINE
15.5 x 10.3 x 23 cm My brother-in-law Frank gave me this adding machine one christmas. It was a good gift; on one hand it appealed to an appreciation of the antiquated Frank and I share, while on the other handalluded to the role of brother-in-law as a good for nothing moocher. It is important to note that said role was portrayed perfectly by Randy Quaid in the film Christmas Vacation.
