Replicas of homes built from spam credit card application mail

Jeremiah Johnson had a crazy idea to get back at all the credit card companies that began flooding his mailbox with applications. He’d just finished college, had no money, and no inclination to sign up for a dozen credit cards. Originally, he planned to make a statement against it all by signing up for every single card and maxing it out.

But then a more reasonable idea struck. Representative of the way people buy houses on pure credit, Johnson began building his Dream Homes out of credit card applications. And so he discovered a productive – and creative – way to dispose of all his junk mail.
