QR code is a black square-patterned barcode which can
be read by android, iphone and smartphones with free
barcode reader apps and cameras in them. The technology
has been around since a Toyota subsidiary created it
in 1994, but only just beginning to take off in the
US. Rock|DeMent visual art space utilizes this new technology
in their April exhibition, Access Point.
is the abbreviation for Quick Response. Artists
Stephen Rock and Nichole DeMent respond to the advanced
speed of the world where convenience and technology
go hand in hand with this interactive exhibition. Visitors
will visually experience a room filled with what appears
to be black and white abstract graphics which, upon
scanning with a phone, will quickly access the hidden
data selected by the artists. Through this exhibition
the artists pose questions about current themes in art,
society, and technology, as well as inspire dialog about
how information is accessed and the potential to affect
response through new media.
New shows open on every First Thursday of the month.
