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.
15.3 x 4.5 x 8 cm Lois used to live next door. She had lived there her whole life, as had her parents, as had her grandparents. Lois was a hoarder. This was her father's. It represents perhaps one-tenth-of-one percent of the old tools arranged like a drunken Tetris game strewn about her basement.
