This is not the first time someone used a Dead Drop in a wall, but German artist Aram Bartholl created a permanent installation on the side of the Museum of Moving Image that allows patrons to "insert a blank DVD-R and receive a digital art exhibition, a collection of media, or other monthly curated content, burned onto their disc."

It seems that Berlin artist Aram Bartholl, who combines technology and art to create participatory works, was commissioned by the museum last summer to create a permanent installation on the side of the museum. DVD Dead Drop consists of an embedded slot-loading DVD burner on an exterior wall of the building, available to the public 24 hours a day. Visitors can insert a blank DVD-R and receive a digital art exhibition, a collection of media, or other monthly curated content, burned onto their disc.
