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.
BOX WITH A HOLE
13.4 x 8 x 7.7 cm This is the base of a lamp I bought when we stayed in Belfast for 5 weeks, 2006. We had a little apartment above a bar and worked 16 or 17 hours a day making this art project called Building. It was pretty much heaven. I kept the base of the lamp because it is a nice wooden box with a hole in it, and I like to make wooden boxes with holes in them that you look inside. Perfect.
