Aram Bartholl

DVD Dead Drop 
permanent installation at MMI 2012 
Commissioned by the Museum of Moving Image NYC

For this new commissioned work, artist Aram Bartholl (Berlin, b. 1972) will embed an inconspicuous, slot-loading DVD burner into the side of the Museum, available to the public 24 hours a day. Visitors who find the Dead Drop and insert a blank DVD-R will receive a digital art exhibition, a collection of media, or other featured content curated on a monthly cycle by Bartholl or selected artists. DVD Dead Drop imbues the act of data transfer with a tangibility left behind in a world of cloud computing and appstores, using a medium - the digital versatile disc -that is quickly becoming another artifact of the past.
