FLASH FL00D is a semi-secretive mass public exhibition of rapidly-distributed hidden flash drives containing downloadable exhibitions. Curatorial members of Little Berlin along with other Philadelphia galleries, collectives, artists, hackers and members of the public were invited to embed USB flash drives known as‘dead drops’ in public locations such as walls, phone booths and staircases. Individual exhibitions of artworks were placed on usb drives and distributed around the city. In addition to the exhibition, workshops, talks, performances and BYOBeamer events were held at the gallery. The opening featured an evening of projection of analog moving images, data visuals, motion graphics, motion capture, video and music.
