A lifetime of found treasures meticulously collaged into one 30-yard container. 500 unique treasures each holding an equally unique story.

Like a young, curious boy trapped in a grown man's body, collagist, animator, director and all-around creative renaissance man Mac Premo has collected a lifetime's worth of somehow-sentimental objects in his Brooklyn Studio.
The Dumpster Project

Once inside it's immediately apparent that this is no dumpster simply full of junk, but a collage in every essence. And although the concept sounds overwhelming, the execution is anything but. As a skilled craftsman on many levels and certified carpenter Premo has meticulously built every object into the structure, filling each and every nook to form one free-flowing, interweaving three dimensional collage.

The stuff we keep that appears to have no use, no actual value, that’s the stuff that defines us. Not the actual objects, but the stories behind them.
