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.

In the business of mnemonic devices, photographs are their own kingdom, much less a mere phylum or family. So it was a matter of policy that I left photographs out of this project. Having said that, this is the one photo that gets a pass. I don't know where I got it; I don't know what the situation is; all I know is that at some point in the middle of the twentieth century, a sentient being documented a non sentient being, the result being this  creepy, creepy image.
