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.
THE MACK SIGN
25.2 x 21.9 x 5.6 cm When I was a boy, my father took me to the sign painting shop for New Jersey Transit. I watched real men paint real signs with real brushes. I was 7 or 9 and I remember thinking about craft, and how it was probably a really good thing. Someone at the shop made me this, a Mack truck sign attached to a big chunk of routed and finished oak. You know, cause my name is Mac(k).
