Found objects and final project.

I've always compulsively held onto scraps of paper over the years. Posters, flyers, bits of trash, notes from friends, drawings, they're all in the back of a filing cabinet. Once in a while I make a collage out of them.

This one has a newspaper from 1942 that was under the floor in the 337 building, as well as a ripped-up copy of J.D. Salinger's 9 Stories I found once. It's one of my favorite books.

My senior year of high school I had posters floor to ceiling in my room. I took them all down and made cd-sized squares out of all the images, the images that informed my life.

I've kept the poster with me ever since through 4 years of college, It's time to let it go.

See you on tuesday.
