SP/M Sonnet can’t stop stupid junk mail, you receive daily. However, it will entertain you.
In your mailbox, you can find titles as V.I./.G.R./., organs enlargements, easy earnings, etc. Teo Spiller, net.artist from Ljubljana thinks it is a new kind of slang. Somebody tries to draw our attention, use only few words in the subject of e-mail and is very advertising aggressive. There are also many properties of technical nature: to outwit spam filters by usage of dots between characters, replace some characters or syllables with numbers and special characters, etc.
These strange titles, like a strange poetry, one after one daily fill our ailboxes. Teo Spiller new net.art project “SP/M sonnet” enters those subjects and the names of spam mail senders into a database and writes sonnets. They are composed from junk mail subjects, listed by order, depending on time of visit and of your personal and technical data, received by visiting SP/M Sonnet. The result is a real surprise!
Teo Spiller, net.artist
