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.

When I go to Belfast, I like to visit the Protestant propaganda shops. I found this tea towel which reads WE SAY NO TO THATCHER.  You'd think that sentiment would be a Catholic one, but apparently ol' Tin Knickers really pissed off the Prods in 1986 when she signed the second Anglo-Irish Agreement, subjugating Northern Ireland's association with Britain or Ireland to a majority vote. Such political vitriol tends to mop up the spills better.
