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.
OLD PNEUMATIC TUBE
7 in diameter x 27.4 cm Aaron gave me this in 2009. I believe it is from a bank, one of those tube systems, the kind that pre-dates our current internet tube system. When I opened it up, it smelled pretty rank inside. And no, I have absolutely no explanation for my olfactorial curiosities regarding the inside of an old tube.
