Still: Scanning the QR code reveals the following Haiku.


Light and shadows pause
On the edge of everything
Evening kisses dawn

I’ve been exploring ways of incorporating QR codes into my artwork and thought it would be fun to use them to reveal hidden messages.

QR Codes are gaining popularity in advertising, generally to lead prospective customers to URLs, and were first used in the automotive industry in Japan.

QR Code scanners are available as I-Phone/I-Pad and Android apps,
The ones I’ve linked here are simply the first to appear on a Google search, but there are several Apps available for either OS.

This is the text-free version of my Still Tee shirt design.

My focus as a photographer and digital artist ranges from traditional photography to PhotoArt compilation and the less explored world of abstract design created with natural elements such as smoke, oil and water.

    Es llamativa, enigmática y sumamente original, Richard.
    Es lo que llamaríamos "la visión de una mente “cuadriculada” …..y en negro lo mejor.
    ¿La cara es una fotografía o alguna imagen realizada con programa de arte digital?
    Me va a instalar Daniel el Cinema4D….tengo ganas de realizar algo con ello…aunque antes tendré que estudiarlo. ¡Es muy emocionante…!!
    ¡Un abrazote!

  • Me gusta esa frase, “Mente cuadriculada”. Me suena analítico, y trabajo con muchos ingenieros con una mente así. Es interesante escuchar sus puntos de vista sobre cualquier tema porque no perciben aspectos no-analiticos. En mi trabajo muchas veces siento que ando bailando entre dos mundos.

    La cara es una foto de la cabeza de un maniquí transformado en Photoshop. El cuadro es un QR Code que al escanearlo te muestra una leyenda que viene siendo mi Haiku “Still”. Explico eso con mas detaille en la otra version de este diseño Aqui

    Cinema4D suena interesante. No lo conozco, pero quizás lo conoce mi hija Stephanie.

    Agradezco mucho tu atención Rosa, y te mando un abrazote :-)

    This is a really neat design Richard…..I love that it feels like a bar code of sorts, don’t we all have one. Really nice with the simple word, STILL

  • Thanks Elizabeth. I’ve been looking for ways to use these QR codes in art, but in a way that actually utilizes a live code, so this seemed like a good idea. I’ve tried blending them in with landscapes and other photos, but the code isn’t clear enough to be read.
