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.
A GUIDE TO U.S. NAVY INSIGNIA FLAGS AND DECORATIONS
14 x 9 x .9 cm My friend Amy gave me this book sometime around 2002. When she gave it to me, I remember remarking on its awesome collage-material-potential. She said something like, 'You could also just keep it, you know, as a book.' I remember wondering: well what good would that do? No offense to books or anything.
