The Creators Project: Who are you and what do you do?
Kim Asendorf: My name is Kim Asendorf and I currently live and work in Kassel, Germany. Some call me a net, conceptual, media or digital artist, I would say I am a computer artist with a great passion for conceptual art. But actually I don‘t [care] what kind of artist I am, I just want to figure things out, as I’m driven by curiosity. That‘s why there is always an experimental component in my media art. For me, it‘s a part of the work itself to satisfy my curiosity and experience the reactions of the audience, which makes the internet a good place for my concepts because people enjoy posting their reactions. And the programming implements a random factor, it‘s like drawing an image with closed eyes. Basically, you write down your concept in a digital language, an algorithm, and it’s an awesome way to describe a concept. Do this, check reaction, react, check re-reaction, lean back and enjoy interaction. I also currently work as a new media research assistant at the School of Art and Design Kassel. And recently co-founded the Fach & Asendorf Gallery, an online exhibition space for modern and more modern art. And just at this moment, I am founding an agency for everything.
