Screen dump of the ARTSPAM #1 email sent out to as many addresses as I could find and the reply to those who responded:

Dear spammed one,

Thank you for your patience while I experiment with art. I have been increasingly interested in the use of technology to not only distribute art but engage audiences interactively with process. Your acknowledgement is very much appreciated. Please feel free to forward on the email to anyone. For the technically minded they are animated GIF files made from stills from my film 'we are here'...

Best wishes...SpamBob
