Simon Drew: fairy hat – hairy fat penguin
Simon Drew: trust me I’m a ducktor
I am an artist and have an unusual request for woven ribbon. This is an inquiry to see if what I need is even possible, and if so, if it is at all affordable.”
So began an e-mail that came in last Summer.
The artist concerned was Ann Morton from Phoenix, Arizona and happily we were able to work together very well.
The task was to weave 65 unique QR codes in silk to be used as identifying tags in an art project to go on show in early 2012.
February 27th – March 2nd, 2012
Arizona State University, Tempe Campus
School of Art
Harry Wood Gallery
The exhibition has now come to end and was by all accounts a great success.
“UNENTITLED, first shown in February of 2012, is a culmination of 3 years of research associated with the Collective Cover Project and my Public Action work with the homeless community in downtown Phoenix, Arizona. The installation combines 5 different works which offer an overall expression of lost individuals – those once attached to the found objects in the Collective and a number of homeless individuals whom I’ve come to know over time.”
To continue reading about this intriguing project see the review at annmortonaz.com

and yes, the QR codes did work as intended!
