QR CODES

A QR (Quick Response) Code is a two-dimensional bar code intended to contain information which can be scanned quickly and easily by electronic devices. They are hugely popular in Japan and rapidly gaining popularity in the US but their use is much rarer here in the Denmark and South Africa. Particularly common are QR Codes that contain website links, directing your phone browser to a unique web page that is only discoverable via the codes. This will be one of the first times the technology has been fully used across a range of art events.

Anyone equipped with a camera phone and QR Code Reader software can scan a QR image and access the information it contains. Many new mobile phones come with this software already installed but nearly all camera phones have software available that's easily downloaded and installed.

Once installed the application will allow you to open your camera and take a photo of a code, then it will 'read' the code and present you with the results. In the case of website links it will usually display the website address and ask if you would like your phone browser to connect to the internet to access the online content.
