Dearest TINKEBELL, 2009
book (i.c.w TINKEBELL), 1000 copies



Hate mail is something that I saw mentioned in newspaper articles a lot, and I always wondered; what kind of people are hate mail senders? When TINKEBELL approached me with a collection of thousand hate mails she received, I had this curiosity again; what kind of people are wishing her dead? It was relatively easy to find out through their mail addresses, which they often also used to create a social network page, like MySpace. I spend months on the internet to search these people and see everything about their private life. In the end 75 percent seemed to be teenager and they reminded me a bit how I was when I was a teenager. I also got furious when, for example, someone didn't throw paper in the paper bin, or when they were trimming trees in the local forest etc. Luckily I was only bothering people in the local area with this, because there was no internet.


Jan Willem van Prooijen, social psychologist and researcher at the Vrije Universiteit said about this conclusion: "We know from research there are factors that causes people to express more hate.Some of these factors is reflected in this project: the thought of being anonymous, creates a lower threshold for responding in anger. The fact that the hate mail senders are mainly teenagers isn't surprising me. Teenagers generally think more in black and white and have a lower impulse control."..."Easily expressing hate is also caused by more circumstances and situational factors, like social isolation and a certain form of narcissism, those people are for example also more likely to put a lot of information about themselves on the internet"
