Colliding Lines at Internet Yami-Ichi | BASEL
EN | DE
We’re going offline. Colliding Lines artists, writers and makers will be taking part in Basel’s second Internet Black Market on May 27th, bringing a selection of interactive publications, projects and objects for you to covet and collect IRL.
The fleamarket specializes in providing materialized services and products that usually only exist online – think handwritten spam, meme postcards and legally harvested organs.
Our joint stall with A Wandering Poem / Um Poema Errante features the following:
- Christian Marques and Angharad Hengyu Owen’s bi-disciplinary, bi-lingual visual-poetry opus A Wandering Poem / Um Poema Errante – link.
- Abi Palmer’s What’s New, Pussycat, a journey into the world of Amazon.co.uk’s one-time 352nd top reviewer – lover of cat calendars, novelty lighting, and long reviews about his mother…
- Care-tags.org time travel ARG, found in hacked fashion forum somewhere in 1995.
- Shadowplay: Pretext, a physical tape edition and typographic re-rendering of Colliding Lines’ post-apocalyptic live text experiment Shadowplay – link.
- And more…
The Internet Yami-Ichi (Internet Black Market) is a free-to-attend flea market where people gather and exchange “internet-ish” things in real life. Originating in Tokyo, the Internet Yami-Ichi was founded by artist duo Exonemo and their “online art collective IDPW”. Since then Yami-Ichi markets have taken place in over ten cities worldwide including New York, Berlin, Tokyo, Brussels and Amsterdam – and now for the second time in Switzerland.
