Several artistic data visualization applets that represent computer viruses & spam as part of an artistic project, titled 'visp' (VIrus & SPam). Similar to a biological virus, the art project mutates during the process. the applets cluster viruses & spam as cubes displaying identify code, the date of first detection & mail subject as a grey scale barecode, or use cellular automata to depict viruses as red dots & spam clusters as circles.
