A printer spits out a randomly generated poem every ten minutes from a long list of words and expressions that should not be used in an email to prevent them from ending up in the spam folder. These blacklists are provided by digital marketing agencies to train their clients in mailing techniques. Here, several of these lists have been combined to create a large database of words or expressions. A computer program then randomly selects three lines to compose a new random poem, every ten minutes, and then prints it.

Uncertain haikus, snatched from internet bins, spit out by an automaton printer that covers the floor of the exhibition with them until saturation.
