This is magnificent!
PWIFd (Places Where I’ve Fuck’d) (2013)
“PWIFd features a series of street views of Montreal, recording at first glance a seemingly ordinary panorama of cropped façades of buildings, street signs, empty parking lots, storefronts, and parks. The exhaustive documentary nature of this photographic collection reveals and austere portrait of the city, capturing both the built environment and the blurry faces of the pedestrians. Yet the subject of the photographs extends far beyond the blank canvas of the Google Street View images and the locations they document. The project is a personal record of all the places where the artist engaged in sexual acts, casually organized through online chat rooms and dating sites. “Neither a biography, nor a fiction,” the project exposes a constantly updated personal mythology coded with an abstract dictionary of hashtags describing the variety of sexual acts: #versa, #top. #oral. #bdsm, #w/s, #ff, #kinky. Playing with disclosure, anonymity, and surveillance, the project frames the spatial realities of mediated sexualities and queer spaces in the city.”

Looking Into the Past: 1906 San Francisco Earthquake - Market and Battery Streets
Newscopy (1954 Apr. 17): “BURNING CITY—Smoke, rubble and the skeletons of buildings are all that greeted the eye of daring when this photo was taken at Market and Battery streets in 1906. Market street is paved with cobblestones. On left can be seen mantle gas light standard, Market street’s original ‘path of gold’ and the Ferry building looming through smoke cloud. The street is littered with bricks and other debris.”

What happens when you spend too long making your grocery list and surfing the Internet. Is there somewhere I should put this (besides the trash?)
