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.

Chris Hoover was the best skater of all our friends. Once he broke his wrist so badly he had to have pins put in it and was in a cast for a couple months. So he skated in a cast. When we all left for college, Chris set up a fully fledged screen-printing business. While we were learning about art, Chris was making things, running a company. He called it Pure Funktion.
Since then, Chris has had his fair share of broken wrists, metaphorically speaking. Just as that initial fracture was self-induced, so have been his other breaks, and Hoover would be the first to admit that. But he has never failed to get back on the board, and he has never failed to be a fucking hell of human.
