UNREQUITED

Steel, card stock, plastic, faith

Create a burner email account and creep around on sketchy websites. Let that email account amass a few years' worth of spam emails. Resize over 400 of those emails onto custom cut card stock to fit inside a classic Rolodex. Flip through countless pathetic, desperate attempts to scam people with promises of love, overt sexuality and long distance friendship. Then imagine I'm the type of romantic that thinks these could actually all be real people – and not Russian phishing scammers – who, if I could work up the nerve one day, might get a reply in an attempt to spark up something special. Until then, their offerings of love will go unrequited.

Hence the name.

4" x 7" x 7", not that heavy to be honest
