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.

Bryan Paulk gave me this around 2005. It is a square that his dad owned. I used it for a bit, but I prefer the machinist ones, the all metal ones. This is so damn pretty though, I always kept it right on my work table. I wonder if he gave it to me to use for art or as art?
