SPAMMED!

Spammed! Is a series of mixed media compositions that combine photographed or imagined objects and scenes with the subject lines from spam email. This series pushes specific imagery into conceptual waters and is very relevant to thinking about American society today. These unsolicited emails have themes of sex, health and drugs, money, etc. These themes seem to be what the senders believe to be top of the American mind today. They also answer unasked questions such as "What does it mean to be a man today?" and "What is the quickest, easiest route to pleasure and happiness?" This body of work could not have been created in any previous generation.
