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 girl gave this to me. Not like a gift-- not like a gesture intended to transfer meaning in greater measure than the value of the material object given. More like:
ME: 'I need a blade'
HER: 'Here ya go.'.
But nonetheless, meaning was attributed to the object. I'm not putting that on her, not assigning her the responsibility my lofty perception of an everyday action. All I'm saying is that a girl gave this to me.
