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.

The story of Tom Tresh is a mildly bittersweet one. On one hand, he played shortstop for the Yankees, last one to start on opening day prior to Jeter. He broke a tie in a World Series game with a home run. Lots of good stuff. But his rookie year would prove his best, and Tom Tresh would die of a heart attack at only 60. In Florida, no less.
So goes luck with less then expected returns, but still, from the outside, a good looking life. Above and beyond all that, this can be said about Tom Tresh: he was honored with an almost aesthetically perfect baseball card.
