The original idea of the trashconnection is the definition of trash online. Everybody, who is just surfing arount the net, has to confront with always appearing advertising banners, icons or trademarks. By mirroring them with the permanent addresses in the HTML-document 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, untill all the segments disappear in the internet. Furtermore the Trashconnection shows digital creations of net-art.
