marc calvary

the carbon based mistake was created 03.30.75 by marc calvary and takes the form of zines & books & photography & writing & blasphemy & art & design. eternally residing in new york the carbon based mistake exhibitionistically displays perverse, tragic, and bizarre behavior while drinking from the poisoned well.


besides the main project, a series of books and zines under the umbrella name of the carbon based mistake, marc finds the time to do other projects by being annoyingly anti-social. current side projects include the Art Exchange Program, an annual zine contest awarding grant money and prizes in an attempt to encourage others to continue to make art, and a pin-up style adults-only photography and design project called cherrypepper.
