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.

Aaron gave me these. Aaron has given me a number of things over the years, and every one of them has been pretty god damn incredible. These cards, pardon me, "educational cards" depict all sorts of evil folks, like Idi Amin, The Shah of Iran and Saddam Hussein. Ironically, there is no mention on these "educational cards" about how pretty much everyone depicted on one of them was in some way a CIA puppet. 
Great, now I sound crazy talking about a set of trading cards that really didn't need any help being viewed as retarded. Ahhh, the dissenter's paradox. It's a bitch. Thanks Aaron.
