Synopsis

QR CODE is a multimedia performance installation that explores the creative potential of Quick Response codes. The graphical display of these two-dimensional barcodes, in conjunction with other artistic languages, is used to investigate Marshall McLuhan’s concept of “Media as Extensions”, which sees communication media as extensions of the human faculties. The installation space becomes a site where global reality is brought into the here and now and can be manipulated.

The work is composed of different media – performance, video, audio, installation – that act as polyphonic elements in the physical space, testing the limits of communication and the possibilities of information. By moving between two spaces with distinct settings and rhythms – the internal space of the gallery and the external space of the roads in each location – an immersive and reflexive relationship arises from the tension between physical and virtual experience.

QR CODE is a rhizomatic installation, a web of multiple connections between objects, organisms and hybrid experiences.
