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.
THREE WAVING MAO WATCHES
23 x 4 x 1.5 cm My friend Doug who lived in China for 8 years gave me one of these. My friend Kurt, who was just visiting China for a little while, also gave me one. I cannot recall where I got the third one. If it was you, I'm sorry. All I can say is that I am flattered to be thought of by very separate people at very separate times through this wonderful same object.
