‘the curiosity project’ and handmade QR codes by lauren manning and camile wei-hsin lin
the work of lauren manning and camile wei-hsin lin, recent graduates of pratt‘s masters in communication design,
‘the curiosity project’ bridges the fields of print and digital media with a series of handcrafted QR codes.
crafted into posters hung around new york city, each QR code linked to a blog post on the ‘curiosity project’ site,
offering interesting videos, photos, songs, or other media.
the QR codes themselves were assembled from a range of small objects: hershey kisses, magnets, post-its,
and other materials. manning printed or projected a digitally generated QR code and arranged hundreds
of individual pieces in order to recreate the shape faithfully enough to function when scanned by smartphones
and other devices.
