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 banality from emails and text messages dated 1999 to 2015 — the same years when I was actively downloading pornography.

Library of the Printed Web commissioned me to version the zip file into a print-on-demand zine. Across 72 pages I perform the zip on my desktop. Download. Open. Read. Sort. Drag. Preview. Resize. Clean up. And finally trash the entire archive causing the computer to crash. Photo at Graphische Sammlung ETH Zurich by Livio Baumgartner.
