DeadDrop Caching in Cologne – watch a peer-to-peer file sharing network go offline!

After months of preparation: On the 4th of May students of the University of Cologne led us into a digital scavanger hunt. 80 young online-editors from 4 European countries (Slovenia, Hungary, Czech and Germany) took part in the event. The scavanger hunt was a project realized for the Europe House Marienberg, i.e. @thinkeurope exclusively. The idea to this kind of „educaching“ was derived from Aram Bartholls concept of the „DeadDrop“ (click here to find out more).

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 and historic places of Cologne contained history related tasks. The team did a great work, putting the event together. In the end it was definetly worth it. Here are some examples of inbricked DeadDrops, the according tasks and the visualized solutions provided by the international participants:
