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.

So Frani and I were walking down some street in Providence, Rhode Island, 1995. I saw this glorious old ledger sitting in a trash pile. I remember dashing toward it, being so excited at the find. I also remember Frani kind of laughing at me, saying like 'what the hell are you going to do with an old ledger?'
I can almost smell that event, one that happened in the middle of a busy world around us; and even though we were in fact in the middle of a busy world,  there seemed just three things on the earth at that moment: me, Frani and this old book.
