Sorry to dump on you like this.zip recirculates my porn collection with my love letters embedded as metadata. 1,860 jpegs tell a story filename-by-filename of love, lust, heartbreak, and banalities from emails and text messages dated 1999 to 2015 — the same years when I was actively downloading porn0graphy.

As a final act the zip file was saved onto a metal thumb drive and then intentionally rusted. The USB comes with a warning, “connecting it to a computer or other electronics may result in an excessive electric current to pass through the network and may potentially cause damage, overheating, fire and/or explosion.”  Photo courtesy of  Bernd Kusatz.
