A zip file commissioned by Rhizome to inaugurate The Download. Paul Soulellis, Rhizome curator and contributing editor wrote an essay on the work. “Consisting only of still images and their filenames, Sorry to dump on you like this.zip can be read as a dramatic desktop play that takes on an almost operatic depth, with characters, dialogue, and changing scenery … the paratextual spaces of the operating system (file names, dates, metadata, keywords) can perform unlimited narratives, if the player is game to save, search, and sort.”
