Presentation

Overview

Aram Bartholl will present current and recent projects from his artist practice including the project Dead Drops. ‘Dead Drops’ is an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space. USB flash drives are embedded into walls, buildings and curbs accessable to anybody in public space. Everyone is invited to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your favorite files and data. Each dead drop is installed empty except a readme.txt file explaining the project. ‘Dead Drops’ is open to participation and was initiated by Aram Bartholl during his artist in residence at EYEBEAM in New York City, October 2010.
