Cape Breton Centre for Craft & Design is pleased to introduce ExpressCode (XPRXXCODX), an exhibition by Cape Breton artists Onni Nordman and bernard siller. XPRXXCODX is a fascinating art exhibition of multimedia pieces with an internet component. The public is invited to the opening reception for XPRXXCODX, which will take place Saturday, September 19 from 2-4pm.
The works in the show are made of unusual materials which when scanned with a phone app will connect you to various websites. To fully engage with the pieces in XPRXXCODX, you will need a QR app for your smartphone.
“We investigated the tolerances of a geometric computer code matrix for this show,” says Onni Nordman, artist. “We wanted to turn brute physical materials into electronic hot links. How far could you push a shape and still make it detectable to a reader device? Through trial and error we arrived at these objects which are completed when you frame them with your phone and visit the other end.”
“The Centre is excited to have this fun, interactive and very unique exhibit shown in our Main Gallery,” says Holley Grant, Gallery Manager. “With the Internet now playing such a fundamental role in our day to day lives, it is interesting to see how it is incorporated with the multimedia work in XPRXXCODX.”
XPRXXCODX will be displayed in the Centre’s Main Gallery until November 13, 2015.
