“Dead Drops” – Random flash drives in random buildings

Dead Drops, is project started by Berlin, Germany artist, Aram Bartholl.  Aram’s project involves sticking USB flash drives into walls, buildings, etc. all over New York, where people can access them with their laptops and view the files, data, pictures, music, and so on that other people have left and even leave their own contributions.  The flash drives come standard with a read me file that explains the dead drops project.

I like the unique factor of this artist’s project, and applaud him for trying to bring something trust-based and creative into a world that seems to be dominated by misgivings, crime, and strife.  I question his location for the project – NYC, though.  Sure, NYC is a very artsy, underground city, but there are also a lot more people who would be likely to harm the project, by nature of the city’s giant population.  I would have chosen a college town, myself.

Anyone down for starting up an East Lansing Dead Drops?

Current NYC ‘Dead Drops’ Locations:
87 3rd Avenue, Brooklyn, NY (Makerbot)
Empire Fulton Ferry Park, Brooklyn, NY (Dumbo)
235 Bowery, NY (New Museum)
Union Square, NY (Subway Station 14th St)
540 West 21st Street, NY (Eyebeam)
