Spam March 2005

Acrylic paint on wall, 220 x 1100 cm

In March 2005 I disabled all the filters that protect my computer and me from unwanted Spam messages (said to make up as much as 50 % of all email traffic). Instead I collected all Spam directed at me and saved its subject lines in chronological order. The resulting catalogue of text is transformed into a large-scale wall painting.
