Self-portrait is wallpaper made from my 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 and rip. It documents the history of the selfie and the formation of a networked gay aesthetic. Moreover it’s a portrait of me without picturing me.
