Poems Sneaking Through a Sieve—Riley Cavanaugh

Spiral-bound publication, 66 pages

Have a Nice Day Press is delighted to present Poems Sneaking Through a Sieve, the first artist book by Riley Cavanaugh. This publication bridges gaps between artist book, monograph, sketchbook, and collection of materials gathered on the Internet. Screenshots of CAPTCHA prompts and spam emails collected between 2018–2021 are the inexhaustible source material for the two bodies of work which act as the publication’s foundation.

Cavanaugh responds to this imagery and information by superimposing written responses on the CAPTCHA prompts and omitting texts and graphics from the spam emails to create visual poems. In the book, a selection of these works is paired with additional drawings and photographs by the artist. The two distinct bodies of visual poems seem to converse—each speaking their own language—while the drawings and photographs push and pull the conversation between feigning automation and showing the artist’s hand.

Included in the publication is an essay by Nina Wexelblatt.

Attenti al Cane is in the collection of the NYPL and has been reviewed by Artist’s Book Review!
What does it mean to be in love with someone an ocean apart? How do you connect and create intimate space for yourselves when geography isn’t on your side? In a moment where technology is more often denounced as a wedge driving us further from one another, it can also be a bridge between two worlds, a space where we can be closer to those who are far.

The work contained within Attenti al Cane is about that act and gesture, more than it is about the end product of an image. Attenti al Cane is an outstretched digital hand across the expanse that separates Laurel Hauge and Lele Buonerba. Within each image and page are the decisions they made in conjunction, not isolation. In the curation of each screen-capture of the twenty-six dogs found in this book is the relationship of those two and how they see the world within the framework of their trans-atlantic relationship. The dynamic, however, vastly differs from that of a penpal. Attenti al Cane is two lovers holding hands on an evening stroll, with the aid of Google, across the globe and through their longing to be side by side.
