The original idea of the trashconnection is the definition of trash online. Everybody, who is just surfing around the net, has to confront with always appearing advertising banners, icons or trademarks.
By mirroring them with the permanent addresses in the HTML-code on the web, the direct connection is created. The current appearance of such banners depends alone on the initiator. This process lends an incontestable actuality to the entire work, until all the segments resolve in the internet.
Furthermore the Trashconnection shows digital creations of net-art.
