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.

For a while I collected theses rotary phones. When I had 5 of them, I artfully arranged them atop our buffet credenza, and plugged just one of them into an actual working phone jack. When someone called, you couldn't really tell which phone it was. And then I forgot which phone it was, cause who uses landlines? So one day, someone called and I couldn't remember which phone it was and thought 'even if I do answer the phone, I am still tethered to this area cause it has a stupid cord attached to it.' This isn't a very good story. The end.

  1. I have about 7 rotary phones, but no bi-colored ones like that. I'd totally take that off your hands! :) They are really cool.
