Yes, yes, I know it is old and there are more than hints of bad language, but it has been a family friend in my circles for years. My boys put us onto this site long ago and it still makes me laugh. I remember it often. I am surprised that it is still accessible.
But if you don’t like that one try…
another light-hearted approach
Taking over the world non-violently ..with words – cartoon
I am not too sure about this artist’s paintings but I love the idea of linking below and beyond the canvas…..
Perhaps the possibility of ‘too much information’ is now a problem. Allowing viewer’s own imaginations to work is more than half the fun in art I think.
What if traditional forms of art could be more interactive? That’s exactly what Jose Torres, better known artistically as Tony Taj, wondered. Jose, a painter and mobile designer, mainly paints intricate cityscapes on canvas, and is inspired by imagining the lives of the people who live and work on each floor and in each building he paints. So he came up with a way of sharing the stories he created around each character with you as you view the painting–all you would need is your smartphone.
Jose combined both his professions to create what he calls the Ambient Media Portal (AMP). Integrated into each of his works of art are a number of blended QR codes. When you scan a code, you will get a deeper insight into what is happening in the painting.
The code will link to further artwork, be it a live character video, animation, a song, or lyrics. Jose periodically changes this extra material so you can revisit again and again to learn more. Give it a try with the QR code in the above photo–it’s really cool.

Young British Artists or YBAs (also referred to as Brit artists and Britart) is the name given to a loose group of visual artists who first began to exhibit together in London, in 1988. Many of the artists graduated from the BA Fine Art course at Goldsmiths, in the late-1980s…… most of the YBAs were born in the mid-1960s. They are noted for “shock tactics”, use of throwaway materials, wild-living, and an attitude “both oppositional and entrepreneurial.” They achieved considerable media coverage and dominated British art during the 1990s. See below: Goldsmiths where many TBA studied.

Here is another take on using QR codes in art…I like that the process surpasses language…..
Floppy Disk Qr-code
3×3 mt su stoffa (118,11″)

Si tratta di un patchwork di più di 800 floppy disk da 3,5″.
Ogni dischetto è stato etichettato con una trama a venatura di foglia, intervallati in un ritmo damascato, se scannerizzato con un lettore, come quelli dei cellulari ne risulta un testo: un tera non fa primavera.

Honestly, much art from junk is good for recycling but not good for art, (says she who recycles and considers it art). Many sites I went to confirmed this.
(Matt…a separate blog below)
Actually, some of us artists do object to the term ‘Trash Art’. I don’t mind it as then people who see no value in this type of work can at least feel confirmed in their opinion. I do not feel any compulsion to change those people’s minds! I am having too much fun playing with unusual objects and taking it to a new level.
And if you are looking for recycled links…check this amazing hook….it actually connects not with the artist’s site but with an advertizing site…

Imagine being able to see artwork in the greatest museums around the world without leaving your chair. Driven by his passion for art, Amit Sood tells the story of how he developed Art Project. What a great idea!
This type of access to art galleries completely voids the time/space/cost restrictions. How splendid! And this process is equally useful to art as object, process and performance. But, with increased access does one gain increased understanding? Does the sensuousness or immediacy of art still transfer? Or, is this just more remote, DIY art experience without intelligence? Knowledge is not wisdom. It is only more knowledge. Does it diminish the value of art by such easy access or add value by increasing a pseudo intimacy? Will non-paying consumers start the slippery slope of uneconomic viability for galleries? Internet overload itself will prevent too much helpful insight into this aspect of the tool. So, we shall see…

We didn’t receive any comments today however I have a question for you. In the small gallery there is an arrangement of ‘books’ placed on plinths. Is there any significance in the way they are arranged, or is the choice of placement purely as a way of presentation? Cheers Jill
The eight artist’s books displayed as BOOKSHELF have many pages – some are transparent, some are collaged, some are hand drawn, etc. They are peculiar books because they are joined in a way that does not allow all the pages to turn of even be opened. These stand in a closed square as a metaphor to people who have some public areas and some private areas of their lives. When we know people it is rare to know everything about them…even if they are family. So, the arrangement of the eight books is both planned and haphazard, as is our ‘familiarity’ with others.
Though we are seldom given permission to discuss spirituality in a
free and open text within universities…and some universities do not
even offer any courses allowing the education of religion, belief or
theology…I found the seedbed of such keyed sharing on these
important spiritual issues…in the Ladies Toilet, downstairs in the
Visual art building 25 – both stalls. It is true! As a professional
cleaner of just such toilets in the past, I have seen many wall
scrallings. Never have I had such interesting reading! It is all on
topic and heartfelt wisdom. Congratulations, women! Sorry, men you
will not see it I expect.
