Artist Implants USB Drives Into Walls, Makes File Sharing Infinitely Cooler

You might know Aram Bartholl as the man who came up with CAPTCHA business cards. Bartholl is making waves once more with yet another clever and still geeky work of art. Bartholl calls it Dead Drops, and the idea is simple – he embedded five flash drives into walls or curbs around New York so people can anonymously share files with each other.

If you’re in the Big Apple, look for the drops in these 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) and West 21st Street, NY (Eyebeam). Prepare for weird stares though. I mean, I’ve never been to New York so I don’t know the absurdities that dwell in its territory, but I think jacking your laptop into a wall still counts as weird:

Check out Bartholl’s blog for more info, and his Flickr page for more pics. I just hope no one spoils the fun and loads malware into the drops.
