German artist Aram Bartholl merges physical and digital hardware in his latest project called Dead Drops.
The project consists of USB sticks embedded in public walls and structures.
The USB sticks can be used to share files anonymously and anyone can drop or find files simply by plugging a laptop into the wall (an extension cable may be needed). A map of all Dead Drops is available on a website where users can also add their own.
The project is a critical take on the 'digital cloud' where data is no longer kept private.
