Huffington Post named ‘Smoke Screen‘ one of 10 favorite books at 2016 LA Art Book Fair. Their take:

What happens when an image file becomes corrupted or obsolete? In most cases all one is left with is a file name, metadata. Paul Paper’s new book emulates the conditions of the digital screen and mediated experience, by separating the image from its text, or “metadata,” the keywords relating to the image. This smartly designed, monochromatic book frustrates easy consumption of the image while calling attention to the digital image’s constituent parts.

I talked with Deep Splash about recent curatorial projects and inspiration behind them:

Paul Paper speaks about his fascination with the internet communities from his teenage years when he lived in a block house in Vilnius. He explains the ideas behind “Sraunus” and his collaboration with Max Marshall “Blog Reblog”. The film acts partly as an interview and partly as a remediation of both projects.
