Dead Drops – a project by Aram Bartholl

This a preview of “Dead Drops“, a project by Aram Bartholl which he started off during his ongoing EYEBEAM residency in NYC. It is an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space.

Aram Bartholl “injected” 5 USB flash drives into walls, buildings and curbs accessable to anybody. You are invited to go to these places to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your files and date. Each dead drop contains a readme.txt file explaining the project. The most prominent location is right next to the New Museum. The other 4 locations are listed here.
