/// lovely spam /// by Katrin Caspar
Lovely spam deals with the daily incoming amount of bulk emails of one specific email postbox. Thereby only such messages are considered, which has been already tagged as spam by the email provider. I developed a programm in Processing that – as soon as a new message arrives on the email server – first analyze and then transform each incoming bulk email into a typographical image. The picture of each individual message is fitted into the overall picture of the already existing messages. It arises a growing text sculpture, that changes constantly, controlled by the receiving and disappearing of the messages. The representation of each bulk mail will be visible on screen just for a limited time of 14 days. During this time the image of the message will be changed.
