Ghost Writer

Ghost Writer is a distributed exhibition curated by Camden Segal taking place in the free space of participating hard drives.

Ghost Writer is a system through which ghosts can be installed onto hard drives. It works by downloading the file intended to be a ghost onto participating hard drives, and then deleting said file, leaving only the data of the file without any way to access by the user. The user can recover the file using specialized software. The ghost, once installed will slowly be overwritten by the user continuing the use the hard drive.
