Rhizome is pleased to announce the lastest Download featuring World Class GFX Pack (On the DL) by Kari Altmann, a wifi-based artist with interests in algorithms, art direction, and the mutation that occurs as things travel through systems of production and exchange. Mimicking the form of a graphics pack that users can download in a number of online marketplaces (or rip from black market torrent sites and filesharing communities), Altmann offers up a range of world class effects and elements from her own projects that can be used and repurposed to add extra value to yours.

The Download is accessible to all Rhizome members. If you would like to start your own collection of digital art, become a member today.
