Outrossim [Otherwise]

Eduardo Kac

This work is composed of two different anamorphic QR codes in a 40ft (12m) vitrine.

Once the lens of the cell phone converts the distorted images into squares (see diagram below), the QR app in the phone automatically reads the two codes and renders the animations visible. Any QR reader can be used to experience this work. The poem has two complementary animations, each accessed through one of the distinct anamorphic QR codes. The code seen in each side of the vitrine offers the reader not only a distinct visual perspective, but also a different approach to the meanings of the poem.

Commissioned by Oi Futuro, Rio de Janeiro, for Kac's solo show Poesia Digital: 1982-1999 [Digital Poetry: 1982-1999], Oi Futuro, Ipanema, Rio de Janeiro (January 15 to March 02, 2014).
