Spam Poetry


I was speaking to a friend (over the phone) and checking my email simultaneously. As we spoke I decided to look at my spam. As I read the spam I noticed this random, crazy, nonsensical language. I loved it. For me, it was a form of Dada poetry or a Zen Koan. What does it mean? Our brain is always trying to figure out the meaning of things. We do this to make sense and to create order for us to understand our world. Spam defies sense. It is illogical. I decided I would blend my own photographic images with this meaningless spam. As a result, I discovered that these images appear to have meaning. It is like some type of advertisement. The overall impression is that it has some type of merit. It doesn't. It is an image you might see in any magazine trying to sell you something you don't need. In the end, it is up to the viewer to make sense of it and give an imaginary meaning to it. Much like a rorschach test.
