Steve Wiman, "There's More Where That Came From," installation view.


You seem to have both things going on here. It's incredibly complicated and elaborate, but tightly organized.

And very simple. At a glance, you see what it is, like a minimalist painting or sculpture. One of the things that I like about this installation is that it has a beauty to it that can be seen in a glance from a distance, and then when you get close up to look at what the actual stuff is, there is sort of a surprise element. Someone who likes looking at this sort of thing gets hooked in and wants to look at a lot of the individual components. There's a lot of humor, there's nostalgic bits that remind one of childhood, or past experience. A lot of it for me is very personal, like a little trip down memory lane. There are ticket stubs from concerts in the '70s and letters from all sorts of people. Notes to myself, lists of things that need to be done. A list from 20 years ago can completely conjure that moment. That's something that someone who throws everything away doesn't get to revisit in that way. The spur to get to that place of memory is gone.

Of course, you were collecting those memories, not hoarding them? [Laughs] •
