digital printing, color, newspaper, 24 x 120 inches
Wallpaper made from the artist’s digital porn collection — 1,860 jpegs and their file names arranged in Photoshop using a contact sheet filter, pre-Google. The pattern is printed on newspaper to intentionally yellow. It documents the history of the selfie and the formation of a networked gay aesthetic. Moreover it’s a portrait of Clary without picturing him.
