WHAT IS INTERNET YAMI-ICHI?
The Internet Yami-Ichi, from the Japanese “Internet Black Market”, but also “sickness” and “addiction”, is a flea market where people consumed by the Internet can share and buy Internet-related things in real life. In this weird market, you can browse through the booths and find the amazing and the useless—in an ironic and humorous atmosphere reminiscent of the early Internet era. The Internet Yami-Ichi is also an art project that aims to materialized the virtual Internet through a performative flea market.
The Internet Yami-Ichi was created by the art collective IDPW, “a secret society on the Internet that goes back more than 100 years,” and took place for the first time in Tokyo, in 2012. Since then many editions have been organized in several cities including New York, Seoul, Moscow, Madrid, Berlin and more.
