This project responded to a desire to make something tangible and finite from extraneous internet content. Concentrating on email spam as a tool for curating images, we developed a system in order to combine email subject lines with images from Instagram.
And while spam may be clogging up your inbox, two groups found ways of turning all of this unsolicited junk into something fun and enjoyable to consume. Just as garbage has proven to make for interesting pieces of art, virtual junk has the potential of being recycled and produce something worthwhile.
One of these two groups created Instapam: an Intagram picture layered with some spam text. The results were rather humorous and the creators behind the initiative are planning to print them as flyers to distribute during the exhibition.
