The Internet Yami- Ichi * is a free -to -attend flea market where people gather and exchange “Internet -ish” things in real life. Originating in the mysterious orient** the New York edition of the Internet Yami-Ichi will be the first in the United States and appropriately, the largest yet. Over 100 vendors will sell their stuff at Knockdown Center, a 50,000 square foot former door factory-turned arts space in Maspeth, Queens.
Online secret society IDPW organized the first Internet Yami-Ichi in Tokyo in 2012. Since then it has travelled to Berlin, Sapporo , Brussels , and Amsterdam . Past vendor items include glitch -embroidered clothing, Edward Snowden snow globes, and apps rejected by Apple. The Internet Yami-Ichi in New York coincides with the first ever WWyW (World Wide Yami Ichi Weeks), simultaneous markets in Taichung, Taiwan; Linz, Austria, and Seoul, Korea.
Flea markets and the Internet are both fanatical and chaotic mixes of the amazing and the useless. In the Internet Yami-Ichi the wills and desires which brought us online are salvaged into a social exchange celebrating the Internet, in the real world.
