Market Sells Internet Artifacts In Real Life
A market in London brings artifacts from the Internet into the real world
The Internet Yami-ichi (which means “black market” in Japanese) brings internet artifacts such as selfie caps and Edward Snowdomes to life.
Twenty local and international artists displayed and sold wares at the market. Nimrod Vardi (of arebyte) and Tine Scharaffenberg curated the event. According to arebyte, “both flea markets and the Internet are fanatical and chaotic mixes of the amazing and useless. The Internet Yami-Ichi is a celebration, where together we experience the afterglow, off line, as the ‘buzz’ of the Internet wears off.”
