about

On the 30th of April 1993 the Cern officially announced that the world wide web would be free for anyone to use. The internet as we know it was born.

It is now a big part of our lives, information flows in a continuous stream, and we flow with it, always connected.

There is no growing without pains. The signal that once used to be loud and clean, is getting harder and harder to find, drowned in a sea of gaggeling noise.
Noise is what Kurodama likes to deal with, and the decay of information sometimes, unintentionally produces constructs of surrealistic beauty.

"Spam is the New Dada" is about that, about signal and noise, interference, information decay, content to bullshit ratio and about spam mails that deconstruct language to a point where it almost seems to mimic the work of the artistic avantgarde.
The irony of it all is that spam is much older than the internet itself. The first unsolicited advertising mail was send on the 3rd of May 1978.

You have randomly been picked to receive this message. It's all part of our plan.
