Through my childhood I saved everything.  When moved out of my parents house in 2008, I decided to let go of everything all at once.  I worked with photographer, Arielle Zarr, to document all the objects, I then wrote about my memories attached to the objects examining their sentimental value and why I initially felt the need to hold onto them.  In a series of exhibitions titled, Sentimentality, I offered up all of my childhood belongings for trade.  In exchange for the objects I asked for written stories or drawings.  These written exchanges could directly relate to the object or be something else.
