Fall of 2008 I was introduced to QR Codes by a Dutch graffiti artist. As a graphic designer I was drawn to the strong lines of the black and white code. As a multimedia artist the code opened a world of possibilities. As a marketer I introduced the technology where I work. As a galleriest I use the codes to connect your smartphone to the arts. And as a creative tinker I decided to start a diary of my codes. Over the years I have created codes that connect to text, soundscapes and movies and wanted to chronicle my journey. This diary, the first in the series, contains codes that connect to movie clips recorded on my iphone. Each clip is raw, dated and has a short blurb. Most were recorded near my home in Tremont, while walking my dog Kona, or in my white Honda. The main purpose of this diary is to experience QR Code technology in a playful way while introducing a new way of participatory art — augmented reality. Come to the show, download a QR Code scanner app on your smartphone, snap the code on the posters in room 11 and get connected to Youtube. Hit the play button and watch the clip on your smartphone — anytime, anywhere!
