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.
I ran into my friend Loren on the street one day, early June, 2011. 'Oh, I have something perfect for your dumpster,' he told me. 'It's an old Hoover vacuum, one of those ones from the 60's.' 'Fantastic,' I said, 'Does it work?' 'Of course not,' he said without even a hint of irony.
