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 bought these in Mexico in 1993. The bottoms are made of old tires. I dedicated a sketchbook spread to them at the time, bestowing upon them the role of speculative barometer, a tool that would measure the kind of adult I was to become: Would I cherish them as a hallmark of my young-manmanship, or would I callously offer them up  at a garage sale, trading the memories they carried for the comfort of diminished clutter?
As it turns out, I am putting them in a dumpster.
