Material for this book was assembled from a decentralized network of peers and was filtered by an anonymous population of microworkers. More than two thousand adult movies were bulk harvested from p2p websites directly to a server location. Following two separate scripts, the clips were automatically trimmed down to the first ten minutes and then broken into thousands of low-quality JPG snapshots awaiting to be filtered. The pool of images was later submitted to crowdsourcing services. a selected group of microworkers was assigned to filter these thousands of images according to a conciously vague instruction: as to whether or not they displayed contemporary art. 15,5 x 17 cm
