"Benjamin Grosser creates interactive experiences, machines, and systems that explore the cultural, social, and political implications of software." "ScareMail is a web browser extension that makes email 'scary' in order to disrupt NSA surveillance. Extending Google's Gmail, the work adds to every new email's signature an algorithmically generated narrative containing a collection of probable NSA search terms. This 'story' acts as a trap for NSA programs like PRISM and XKeyscore, forcing them to look at nonsense. Each email's story is unique in an attempt to avoid automated filtering by NSA search systems." -- From Electronic Literature Collection, Volume Three
