As a part of his EYEBEAM residency, Aram Bartholl wanted to create a peer to peer file-sharing network in public space. And what better way to do that than embed USB flash drives into brick walls? The project, "Dead Drops," consists of five offline, anonymous drives where people can plug in their laptops to upload or drop any files they like.
So far, the USB drives can be found at 87 3rd Avenue, Brooklyn; Empire Fulton Ferry Park, Brooklyn; 235 Bowery; the Union Square subway station and West 21st Street. If you go by, let us know what files there are to upload (i.e. what kind of porn people put on there).
