I swear this show speaks to my life. That’s probably why I love it so much.
New social experiment going down in NYC….
“I am pleased to preview ‘Dead Drops’ a new project which I started off as part of my ongoing EYEBEAM residency in NYC the last couple weeks. ‘Dead Drops’ is an anonymous, offline, peer to peer file-sharing network in public space. I am ‘injecting’ USB flash drives into walls, buildings and curbs accessable to anybody in public space. You are invited to go to these places (so far 5 in NYC) to drop or find files on a dead drop. Plug your laptop to a wall, house or pole to share your files and date. Each dead drop contains a readme.txt file explaining the project. ‘Dead Drops’ is still in progress, to be continued here and in more cities. Full documentation, movie, map and ‘How to make your own dead drop’ manual coming soon!” – Aram Bartholl

Meet William Yan. The NYC-based photographer & blogger covers various events in New York. Outside of just taking pics at events he also does shoots for magazines such as Complex & Interview and others. His style of photography is very playful and personable which make for great pictures. All his event pics make you feel as you were there since he lives nothing uncovered. I’m still waiting for him to take a picture of me seeing that we’ve been to a lot of the same events, but I disgress. More of his work below.
