Turning Spam into Art

Today I read an article about Romanian artist Alex Dragulescu who turns spam into beautiful works of art. He assigns certain words and numbers occurring in spam messages length of petals and leaves, color, etc. This creates a picture from words (or, in another project, music). Ideally, in the future artist-scientists might be able to turn songs into visual art that we can view--actual representations of what is heard, much like the laser light shows of the 1970s.
