Dead Drops: An Art Project That Puts Memory Where Your Mortar Is

What you see here is part of an art project called Dead Drops. USB drives are stuck into walls around New York City and users are encouraged to connect and upload and download whatever they want. Knowing New York these things will soon either be coated in slime or filled with chork porn it’s definitely a fun project.

The devices are at the following places:

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)
West 21st Street, NY (Eyebeam)

Each drive contains a readme explaining the project and there are will be updates on the project website. My favorite is this shot of our buddy Bre Pettis getting his drop on.
