Art project on creative & custom QR code:
city mapping of some main cities as New York, Paris, Berlin, London, ...
Spring 2015, New York
Spending 3 months in the Big Apple is bound to inspire me and cause me to reconsider my painting and my technique.
I want to make my art more present, more rooted in the time and New York life looks ideal as a source of new creations. The project I would like to develop will mix photo and painting, reality and virtuality.
I will include one QR code in each canvas or paper.For me, the city is a projection on the ground of social relations. Through a personal, an original graphic writing and a completely abstract painting, I try to tell a story, to blend the real life with my own imagination.
What is a QR code?
The QR code is a kind of bar code consisting of black modules arranged in a white square. The layout of these points defines the information contained in the code and it is customizable. Graphically, this form will blend perfectly with other graphics I already use my pictorial work.
In addition, each table will be interactive and will trigger the following:
show geographically New York on Google View for example
watch a video online about the city
display an original text or citations compared to New York
use you own photo of New York (jpeg file that you sent me before by email)
listen a particular sound of New York
The QR code will take part of my original creation: sizes & colors will be also related to the medium, the subject and theme of the painting. Technically, each QR code will be unique and active.
For more interactivity with the audience during the art exhibition.
Each original creation will be interactive with this QR code: each people will be able to scan it and will discover the corresponding picture online. An exhibition will be organized with all of these works created in New York during or after my residency.
