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.

My uncle Jim bought a late 80's Ford Taurus from a man he has described as some sort of 'Amish hippie'. He bought it for his son John. After John, Chris inherited the car. Following its fraternal tour, it went to my Mother, under whom, I believe, it became known as Tony the Taurus, based on this promotional keychain and the fact it seemed to have the heart of a large game cat.
I was Tony's final owner. After the power steering went out on the exit ramp from the Brooklyn Bridge, it was time to put the big cat down.
I have no idea how the hell on can be both Amish and a hippy.
