Internet Yami-Ichi in New York

a free to attend “Internet-ish” flea market

Saturday, September 12, 2015 / 12pm – 8pm
Knockdown Center, 52-19 Flushing Ave, Maspeth, NY 11378

Organized by exonemo,, Chris Romero, and Eri Takane.


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.
