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.

For about ten years these were the pajama pants my wife wore to bed. One day, she just decided to throw them away. I was aghast. Oh, the mnemonic value they hold, is it to be merely discarded? I took them (with her permission), photographed them, and framed them as a part of the dumpster. 
Amazingly, she is still able to sleep.
