1) Find spam e-mail and read it into a mike. 2) Stuff text into a digital voice recognition program. 3)

Compile, cut up, accumulate, shuffle, reshuffle, degenerate, add, subtract, disorient.

jeanfrançois and jérôme Blanquet are the radical spin doctors of misinformation. In their version of

modern dystopia, the mechanisms of viral infection create a blitzkrieg of verbal soundbytes and

subliminal video.

These sensory games of millenial madness translate into slippery meaning, layers of connotation and

denotation, a myriad of compressed verbal information and mixed intention. Burroughs for the digital

age... This is time, in terms of a friendly spam e-mail, to "Be a Hero."
