Price: $20 book, free PDF

A book of poetry — subject lines taken from marketing emails during Clary’s search for Kevin. The artist used MyLife.com and Ancestory.com to buy information on Kevin and in so doing gave them his info. The subject lines first repeat themselves and then try anything to lure Clary back. Sometimes using his data and current events in what is surely algorithmic.

Price: $10 book, free PDF

A zine that eulogizes Clary’s obsession with Kevin. For an exhibition at Practice Gallery in New York the main space was left empty and the artist postered the back of one wall with Kevin’s classified ad. The audience was asked to write a post-humorous love letter and mail it to Kevin’s advertised address. The book includes those letters that were shared with the gallery.

A newspaper that explores the code behind an image of Kevin. Clary pulled over 50 jpegs into a hex editor, looking for something beyond the data. This one image at this specific pixelation, size, and layout revealed a pattern. A slight moire that felt hairy — Kevin in the code.
