invitation by Kim Cascone

this project is based on a new kind of spam people are getting these days...the use of random text embedded into an email is meant to confuse spam email filters (Bayesian filters?)...I have been collecting spam for a couple of years now (images and text) so I can use the content in my projects...I consider any unsolicited spam sent to me as free to use/open source content...

I took 4 or 5 months worth of spam that contained random text and constructed a single text file containing all of it...

here are the stats on the text file:

  • 17,332 words
  • chars (sans spaces) 125,810
  • chars (w/spaces) 143,187
  • 145,270K in size

This project is not constrained to being a music/sound project and is focused primarily on using data sets to create artwork.
