Here's one option for all the SPAM clogging up our inbox.
SPAMpoetry is a series of knitted works containing visual poetry created from SPAM. It is a collaboration between Varvara Guljajeva and Mar Canet Sola who are "interested in bringing together digital culture and traditional handicraft." It was undertaken as an artist-in-residency project at MU in Eindhoven.
First they put the word out that they needed people's SPAM, then they converted it into a pattern and uploaded into a tweaked knitting machine.
The process illuminates the stark contrast between the rapid pace of the digital world and the slow, careful knitting process. More photos here and a video.
