Kim Asendorf is a visual artist who works with conceptual and generative systems to create abstract animations, images and sculptures.
Kim Asendorf creates abstract visual systems, conceptually set and realized in algorithms, that are open to a wide range of interpretations. He works on a per pixel level to create worlds that mix simplicity with complexity, that never sleep, that can mesmerize the viewer. He loves to experiment and is driven by curiosity, finding satisfaction when the work surprises him. With roots in Net Art, he likes to keep his work easily accessible. The Internet is his favorite canvas. Kim is widely know for the creation of a Pixel Sorting algorithm he made with Open Source and that has been used by thousands of artists and designers since 2012. He created image file formats as work of art or the first animated GIF sent into Deep Space. Kim's works has been shown at festivals and institutions like Transmediale, ZKM Karlsruhe, Edith-Russ-Haus für Medienkunst, NCCA Yekaterinburg, Eyebeam, NIMK, LEAP or the Overlapping Biennial Bucharest and at galleries and fairs like Unpainted (Munich), Moving Image Contemporary Art Fair (London), Creation Gallery G8 (Tokyo), Carroll / Fletcher (London), Office Impart (Berlin), XPO Gallery (Paris) or The Photographers' Gallery (London) and received honorary mentions and created controversial discussions on major blogs, media and art magazines and television.
