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.
GOMPY'S UGLY BOX
9 x 9 x 4.2 cm This plastic box had a few of my grandfather's effects in it: his Knights of Columbus tie pin, a pocket knife, a watch with no band. While the contents were fascinating, a small taxonomy of the things with no specific place to be put, the box is universally ugly. I mean, man, what decor does that mesh with?
