Filter the spam

Full scale image Share link

This t-shirt design contains texts written in Romanian. The title says: "Filter the spam". In the lower section of image, the text reads: "Be objective and critical".

My intention with this t-shirt is to promote a broad meaning for the word spam. It is not just the e-mails in the "Spam" folder in your e-mail application. It is also music, movies, books, TV, web sites and news that can be a type of spam. Spam is anything that is unwanted, superfluous and/or irrelevant to you. We live in an age of "informational intoxication". People nowadays are constantly bombarded with so-called "news feeds", notifications, books, music and movies of poor quality. They are designed to sell you onto something: ideas, concepts or products. It takes an objective and critical mindset to discern what is of value and what is not, and strength to limit one's self from the exposure to such content.

The graphical representation suggests how we are manipulated. In the middle, we have the brain and around it, an array of possible sources of spam. We are influenced gradually, drop by drop, each time we get exposed to something. We can involuntarily disseminate spam. Please be mindful of what you share online, on your social network(s).
