Spam as Art? Who Knew?!?

Art is a word (as a noun) that is nearly impossible to adequately describe. One of the simplest descriptions of art that I've heard, was that it is an attempt for humans to recreate life. One aspect of almost everyone's life (at least who reads this) is spam. Yes, the e-mail variety. The spam that appears unwanted in your inbox no matter what you do to control it. Linzie Hunter has taken actual lines from spam that has landed in her e-mail inbox and has turned it into experiments with hand lettering. She's turned the absolutely ordinary into well, art. Enjoy!
