2010 - 2013 QR Code Paintings

This body of work synthesizes mobile technology and painting. The works include QR Codes that, when scanned with a common mobile device, provide referential information about the painting's subject matter, either through text, audio or visual.

This process was displayed first in Canada at the 2010 Toronto International Art Fair, which is now called Art Toronto.

The work challenges the viewer to consider the actions we take that shape society through the use of signs and symbols. They reference events, historical and current, and provide us with an opportunity to evaluate our perceived reality.

This engaged viewing challenges viewers to interact with their environment and to consider the tools and artefacts that have been commonplace.
