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.
WOOD GRAINING KIT
14.2 x 26.1 x 5 cm My cousin Chris has given me tons of wonderful scrap wood, and moreover taught me a tremendous amount about all things wood. He bought me this, kind of an ironic meta collage tool. It is a perfect gift, really, given our relationship, what I do, what we share, etcetera, etcetera. 6 years later, I still haven't used it. I don't know why.
