Artists Kim Asendorf and Ole Fach (Gay Check Online, Fuji Cannon) have collaborated on a song about a uberhacker impervious to the NSA, Google, Facebook and all other nefarious entities spying on your personal data, because he is “invisible on the internet, lalalala.” Enjoy the video above and download the mp3 here. Happy Monday. Here are the lyrics, translated into […]

Why does Gay Check Online exist? The website, which purports to tell you whether you’re gay or straight based on your facial features, sounds like something out of a dystopian horror film, or what the Third Reich might have come up with had they had access to webcams and the internet. Just fire up your […]

Artists Anthony Antonellis (the one with the RFID chip implant) and Kim Asendorf (the one who launched GIFs into space) eat food, just like us. As part of an exhibition for Berlin’s Art Hack Day — an internet-based nonprofit dedicated to “hackers whose medium is art and artists whose medium is tech” — artists Kim Asendorf, Andreas Nicolas Fischer, Sebastian Schmieg, Anthony Antonellis and Nora […]

Earlier this year, the Shortest Video Art Ever Sold! project at the Moving Image Contemporary Video Art Fair in New York made a few headlines with the world’s first Vine sale (Shout out Angela Washko!) Ok, so there was a hacking of Vine involved, but the exciting part in the long-run is the ongoing conversation of a micro-collecting community and the work that artists […]

Germany-based conceptual artist Kim Asendorf  makes undulating, hypnotic, complex gifs. Then why did he send this gif into deep space? Why is this seemingly uneventful gif’s signal being beamed into deep space right now via the Lone Signal METI (Messaging Extra Terrestrial Intelligence) experiment, on its 17.6 year journey towards the potentially habitable solar system Gliese 526? Why? Because, as Asendorf tells […]

Oh my God. Hold me. This is beautiful. Let’s all just look at this gorgeous glitch portrait of the New York Germany-based artist Kim Asendorf who works with experimental “generative strategies, physical computing, data and glitch” and tell me how this is less relevant than Turner.

Digital artist Kim Asendorf designed a web crawler that started by stealing 100 pixels in 10X10 chunks from 10 websites and set it lose. After nine hours gorging on images and jumping at links, it replicated itself into project 100.000.000 Stolen Pixels, gleaning a million images from a million sites (ANIMAL included!) into chasmic landscapes.
