Domain Gallery is pleased to present Inetrnet Download, a solo exhibition by german artist Kim Asendorf curated by Manuel Fern├índez.

Kim Asendorf is a conceptual artist and works in a large area of media and digital related art. He loves to transport things from the internet into the real life and back. 

Kim did several net art projects, often based on data taken from the internet or gathered from other individuals through the internet. He works very experimental with generative strategies, physical computing, data and glitch. Most of his works leads into installations, sculptures, visualizations and abstract geometric art, but also into applications, animated gifs or noisy sounds.

INETRNET DOWNLOAD is the third piece in Kim's ongoing INETRNET saga, afterWHAT INETRNET, a RSS feedback loop powered by Google's FeedBurner and the URL shortener parody INETRNET EXTENDER.

INETRNET DOWNLOAD is an One-Click-Hoster simulation to fake common download links like Rapidshare or Uploaded offer. On the main page is a form with the options to enter a file name and a file size to generate a Hyperlink. Links are encoded like a simple value chain,[FILESIZE]/[FILENAME], and can be created manually as well, because there is no database. Those generated URLs lead to a DOWNLOAD page where you actually can download every specified file.

Kim Asendorf
lives and works in Berlin.
