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.

One day my neighbor Lois asked me if I could help move some boxes for her. I found myself in a basement crammed wall to wall with treasure. Her father had been a washing machine repairman in the 50's. Lois rolled her eyes;  she just didn't know what to do with all those old tools. 
An hour later, Aaron and I were back there, humping boxes, a rented truck outside ready to alleviate Lois of her burden. Inside one red metal box was this stunning saw. The thing still runs.
