On Spam, IP Address

On Spam, IP Address

Lacquered poplar plywood. Dimensions approximately: 41cm x 4,5cm x 0,9cm. 2013 – now.
An IP address taken from the spamfilter of Trendbeheer. Hand sawn in an edition of 1.

An ongoing series in my On Spam project. Behind the scenes of Trendbeheer we have a spamfilter running that prevents the comment section from being flooded with special deals on new Uggs and cheap Rolex.

In On Spam, IP Address the sending computer is the subject-matter of the piece. For every order I receive I use the IP number of the latest spam message in my spamfilter -provided that the number hasn’t been used within this series before- and saw it into a sculpture.

A growing series of numbers representing only a fraction of the amount of computers worldwide that are used for sending spam. Makes for a wonderfull gift. In case you are wondering where in the world your ordered IP address originates from, you might have a look here.

Price: € 100 (includes VAT and worldwide shipping).
You can directly place your order by sending me an email at niels@nielspost.com or use the PayPal button directly.
