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.

Oliver and I did our first art show together in 2003, in Belfast. There was a restaurant down the street called Opium, where this lighter is from, that donated catering for the opening. In exchange, we put their logo on a picture of Oliver and I. It was a large picture of Oliver and I. At one point, a photographer covering the event said to me: 'So, you have a big wee picture of yourself, eh?' I have been to Belfast about 14 times since. I still wouldn't know how to respond to that question.
