LoVid at River to River Festival

LoVid at River to River Festival

This event is part of the River to River Festival

U R QR is an interactive project that unfolds in both public and digital spaces. Each participant has their face painted in a pattern to correspond with their own unique QR code. Every face makes one segment of the whole code.

During the workshop, LoVid will collect conversations with the participants about secret languages, codes, and their personal identity within the context of our networked society.

The final assembled QR design—composed of portraits of participants–will be presented in a public space in Lower Manhattan as a culminating testimony for this collaborative process.
