DeadDrop Caching in Cologne - watch a Peer-to-Peer filesharing network go offline

On the 4th of May students of the University of Cologne organized a digital scavanger hunt for 80 young online-editors from 4 European countries (Slovenia, Hungary, Czech and Germany). The scavanger hunt was a project realized for the Europe House Marienberg, i.e. @thinkeurope exclusively. Under the direction of Prof. Dr. Torsten Meyer the event started in the morning and climaxed in a flashmob in front of the Cologne Cathedral The DeadDrops, which were bricked in at different crucial places of Cologne contained history related tasks. The event was insoired by Aram Bartholls Artproject "DeadDrop". We loved the event and the many different effects it had.
Due to the limited technical abilities of blogger (it seems blogger is not able to incorporate PDF files adequatley) I have put examples and visuals of the event on a different blog: Click here to enter the scavanger hunt!
