10th ANNIVERSARY BOOK!
Do you remember the landscape of the Internet 10 years ago? (I don’t!) The Internet Yami-Ichi was born in Tokyo in 2012, and the year, 2022, is its 10th anniversary! In the past decade, 43 Yami-Ichis have been held in more than 30 cities (you didn’t know that, right?!). We have to download and save all those vaguely-remembered backstreet landscapes of the Internet before they disappear into the 404s! With this sense of mission, We chose a paper book as the destination for the download!
The title of the book is “A DECADE TO DOWNLOAD“ – * The book will be available in English only – * Online digital version is available for free https://yami-ichi.download/ – * Participants will be able to pre-order the book at a discounted price!
At Budapest’s request, not advertised on social media! Otherwise spread the word and apologies for eventual cross-posting!
The Burrow is a pavilion of The Wrong Biennale (Nov 2019 – Mar 2020), envisioning the internet as myriads of intertwining underground tunnels; where places of refuge coincide with the secret bases of those must be hidden from. The show was curated by Aad Björkro and is a sibling of the Very Large Works pavilion by Bjørn Magnhildøen and Zsolt Mesterhazy.
Inspired by aardvarks, who will dig to escape when threatened, and leave their burrows for others to use when relocating. The aardvark reminds us to think with our claws. No one expects us to dig when they force us to move; still in compliance but keeping our place. Then we can tickle the feet of our oppressors as they try to pass.
Emerged in the tunnels we tried to listen to those who must never speak, look for things we have lost and spy on the spies spying on us. For display we gathered relics from our past, expansions of the hidden, connections to the elsewhere and lessons for the future. We are now glad to invite you to see what we have found.
