One of Those ‘Secret Projects’ You Want To Know About

There’s nothing more intriguing than finding something that only you and a few other people know about.

It’s like you found a treasure map that was in your brain but you didn’t know it was there!

These USB’s are hidden in walls and other surfaces around the world.

Artist Aram Bartholl started inserting them and when you plugged it in you found a “readme.txt” file explaining how the project works.

Bartholl, a Berlin-based artist, started placing the USBs 5 years ago and has since seen others join in and replicate his work, building a large international community.

Locations now include:

Dakar, Senegal

13-hidden-usb

 

Folsom, California

12-hidden-usb

 

Salzberg, Austria

11-hidden-usb

 

Cagliari, Italy

10-hidden-usb

 

Hanoi, Vietnam

09-hidden-usb

 

Palais De Tokyo, Paris

08-hidden-usb

 

Pont Des Arts, Paris

This past summer, a database of the project was started to locate and documenting the hidden USBs.

How about a completely different journey around the world? Or a seriously geeky new way to travel!
