The Essays

“The colliding of the worlds of art and digital has encouraged the democratisation of conceptual art, bringing ideas to more people, from all walks of life, all over the world.”

When I first began thinking about researching QR codes to inform my artwork and creative processes I thought it’d be interesting to find out others’ opinions about this concept and the final paintings.

I approached a number of art historians, writers, and academics to discuss how technological innovation could potentially alter the way people approach and view traditional art in the future and the benefits and repercussions that this may present.  I ended up with four very unique and engaging essays on the topic.
