daniel everett

daniel everett's 'building a more meaningful existence'. as he explains: "for this project i used a graphics editor built into an early arcade game to convert spam emails i had received into a virtual landscape. by reconfiguring the graphics editor interface to accept keystrokes as input, i was able to build these landscapes solely by transcribing the spam messages and compiling them. for this piece i specifically chose spam messages that promised me a more meaningful life, increased happiness, and a greater sense of self-worth." see more here.
