I believe that art, technology and digital media can be combined to provide a unique experience. My work tries to do this by making it part of an interactive process, allowing people to engage with the work while taking them through a journey of discovery.

I am presenting two works from my discovery series "Discovering Pablo - A Virtual Museum" and "Discovering John - Interactive Art"


"Discovering Pablo - A Virtual Museum"

This work is part of a discovery series that combines art, technology and digital media. It attempts to give people a unique experience by allowing them to interact with the portrait.
You can interact with it by simply scanning the small QR images covering the face. The portrait has over a hundred small QR images representing different paintings* by Pablo Picasso. The paintings range from 1890, when he was just 9 years old, to 1972 and are arranged in chronological order from the bottom-up.


"Discovering John - Interactive Art"

You can interact with this portrait by simply scanning the small QR images that cover it. This portrait has over a hundred small QR images representing different photos* and videos* on the life of John Lennon. The images range from his early years to the time of his death in 1980 and are organized in chronological order from the bottom-up.

Instructions: Interacting with the Portrait

1. Using your smartphone get any of the free QR readers: i-nigma or QuickMark from the App Store or Google Play Store.

2. Start scanning by pointing the scanner to one of the QR images on the portrait.

3. Wait for the image to appear on your phone. You will see a painting from Picasso or a photo/video from John Lennon
