Kasper Pyndt: In this school project (supervised by Thomas Buxo) I was asked to make a book about one aspect of the internet as part of a book-series inspired by Stewart Brand's Whole Earth Catalogue from the late 60s. My book consists of 61 monetary proposals received in my junk-folder over the course of 3 years. Proposals that most likely are spam. The content is divided into four sections (Inheritances, business proposals, lottery winnings and misc.) in a total of 108 pages. The book is a reflection and investigation on these e-mails, exposing strange or funny sentences. At the same time, it is a comment to contemporary cynicism of internet-users (myself included) that would immediately dismiss these proposals as scams. In theory they could be true? The book takes on this theme by naively stressing the amount of money I could have potentially earned, given that these proposals were real.
