A change of direction
Digital identity is such a broad theme. I am finding myself refining my ideas. Whilst I was experimenting with some ideas for selfies, I went back to an earlier idea which involved overlaying a QR code over a self-portrait (below). It was by no means a finished product, but I wanted to see if it was possible.
QR codes seem to be appearing in more places at the moment. I find it fascinating that a black and white geometric shape can contain another layer of information, which is hidden from view. This idea of concealment made me think about how people are able to use digital means to hide their identity.
Then, I wondered whether it was possible to use a similar image as above to create an active QR code, which could lead to another image. This is something that I hope to develop for my assignment.
