U R QR is an interactive project that unfolds in both public and digital spaces. Each participant has their face painted in a pattern corresponding to part of a composite QR code. When images of all faces are combined, the code can be read.
During the workshop, LoVid will collect conversations with the participants about secret languages, codes, and their personal identity within the context of our networked society.
The final assembled QR design—composed of portraits of participants–will be presented in a public space in Lower Manhattan as a culminating testimony for this collaborative process.
