I will be installing a new, Chapel Hill-specific version of Depiction at the end of February. You may have visited the Depiction installation in Durham last spring where viewers became participants by navigating via QR Code around downtown to specific sites where they were asked to take photos and then contribute them to a community photo collection.
The background of this idea is made up of a few things:
- Getting people to walk around their town and notice details they might not ever see otherwise
- Getting people participating in a creative project together
- Furthering my exploration of removing QR codes from the context of consumerism and into the context of art
The home and starting point of the installation is at Vimala’s Curryblossom Cafe. The installation will be up from February 25 – May 31, 2013.
Two walking tours are scheduled. Check the Depiction: Chapel Hill page for updated information.
