Sporting a balance of $100 in bitcoins, the Random Darknet Shopper visits the deep web and goes shopping, randomly picking up items. The items received are currently on display at the Kunst Halle St. Gallen, in an exhibition titled «The Darknet. From Memes to Onionland». Above, the Nike Air Yeezy2 purchased on Agora.

The Random Darknet Shopper is a live Mail Art piece, an exploration of the deep web via the goods traded there. It directly connects the Darknet with the art space (exhibition space). By randomizing our consumerism, we are guaranteed a wide selection of goods from the over 16'000 listed on Agora market place.
