unCloud is an application that enables anyone with a laptop to create an open wireless network and distribute their own information. Once it is launched, a passerby using a mobile internet device can connect to this open wireless network. The person running the application can decide what information is shown in any web address. Users can access information wirelessly while at the same time remain disconnected from the internet. unCloud does not depend on a remote datacenter, instead it can be run from a laptop, making it an ideal application to run in a train or at a café.

A dropper from Bellingham, Washington started his own little offline network to promote his twice monthly offline magazin “anti matters” for “… subversive news, critical information, and controversial commentary on the planet we live on and the new world that is emerging from the ashes of the old one.”

Since I was in the lucky position to be inculuded in the “Talk to me” show at the MoMA with the offline filesharing project Dead Drops I felt like it would be a great idea to share the possibiliy to show work in the MoMA. While visiting the ‘Talk to me’ show all artists are invited hook up their computer to a flash drive and to drop their art on one of the 5 Dead Drops in the show. Check out the art in the show! Check out all the digital art on the Dead Drops! :) And claim you have an art piece in the moma, which is true! I also recommend to apply for an anual artist pass which will allow you to come back at any time for free. If you can’t get the MoMA artist pass because your are a digital artist and therefore can’t prove to have had ‘Offline’ shows procedd as followed :) http://fffff.at/how-to-make-your-own-moma-artist-pass/
