YOU might have seen pic­tures of flash drives jut­ting out walls on In­sta­gram and thought “oh, it’s prob­a­bly an art in­stal­la­tion or some­thing like that.” In re­al­ity it’s noth­ing like that. Dead Drops is an anony­mous, of­fline, peer to peer file-shar­ing net­work in pub­lic space where USB flash drives are em­bed­ded into walls and build­ings, mak­ing them ac­ces­si­ble to any­body in the pub­lic space.

There are dead drops scat­tered all around New York and started out as a project by Aram Bartholl. Today the move­ment is tak­ing shape on a global level.

Ev­ery­one is in­vited to drop or find files on a dead drop – just plug your lap­top to a wall to share your favourite files and data.
