The first of its kind, How To Download a Boyfriend is a group exhibition in the form of an interactive e-book. Featuring the work of 50 artists from New York and elsewhere, HTDAB showcases what is being made at the intersection of digital and popular culture today. Artists and writers have also created interactive “quizzes” that test readers with funny, probing, or simply absurd questions about love and longing in the 21st century. Curated by the staff of Badlands Unlimited.

HELL_TREE 
by Petra Cortright
E-book, 107 pages, 2012
ISBN 978-1-936440-37-5
Available now on Apple iBooks and Amazon

HELL_TREE is the first e-book by acclaimed net artist Petra Cortright. Since 2005, Cortright has produced a unique body of work that evokes the precarious nature of life in the age of media saturation. HELL_TREE consists of a series of writings by Cortright that exists solely within the context of her computer desktop. By turns technical, absurd, tender, and urgent, HELL_TREE is an unfiltered recording of Cortright’s thoughts during the course of her days. To-do lists conflate with poems. Motivational pronouncements interlace with inflammatory tweets. Texts and images pile and compile without any particular structure other than an unspoken directive to keep everything moving and formless. HELL_TREE embodies this spirit of formlessness. It is an intimate portrait of the artist as a young medium.

The Help, A Companion Guide
by Rachel Harrison
E-book, 131 pages, 2012
ISBN: 978-1-936440-38-2
Available now on Apple iBooks and Amazon

The Help, A Companion Guide is based on images surrounding Harrison’s 2012 solo show at Greene Naftali Gallery entitled The Help. The exhibition shares its title with Harrison’s photograph of the back door maintenance entrance to Duchamp’s Étant donnés, which is visible in the exhibition galleries of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, and alludes to the entangled roles of the Artist, the Muse, and the Help. The Help, A Companion Guide showcases visual and conceptual elements that Harrison used in the making of The Help: from early Google image searches and reference materials, to documentation of the installation process and its attendant “help,” to selected details of the final sculptural works. Harrison creates visual and temporal rhymes that playfully link her finished sculptural works to a constellation of materials and
services that express the immanent sociality at stake in every work of art.
