QRt (QR/Art) is the fine art form I use to connect visual art with words and sounds, via QR codes. It is the medium through which I share perceptions, experiences, feelings and emotions, with others. By scanning the codes embedded in the artwork, and using a set of headphones, I want to guide people into a more experiential world, while aesthetically and sensorially enveloping them.
My QRt work is often abstract but I also enjoy collaborating with other artists, such as Brooklyn-based photographer Valery Rizzo (Coney Island Stories, i.e. Pin Up Girls), or singer Antonio Puerto (the Andalusian voice of the “Arctic Cry (Soleá)“).
When working with photography, I work by experiencing the photograph and turning that experience into a “voice“, extracting its essence, as I feel it. With abstract work, I first develop the concept (i.e. giving voice to the sadness of the Arctic Sea and turning it into a cry, like the one we hear in flamenco “Soleás”) and I then try and serve as the “medium” for that concept. I begin by writing the words, then creating the song or sound/storytrack, and later the visual art – the window or channel through which I try and captivate the viewer’s attention. I want to have the person float through the QRt experience, hypnotically sensing the visual art, augmented by the words and sounds that are intimately delivered through a set of earphones.
Most of my artwork is printed in high quality digital paper (eco-Solvent Photo Paper) and sold as limited series in different sizes. Other artwork integrates tactile elements or other fine art forms (i.e. paint), these are unique pieces, sold individually.
Each work is signed and sold with a certificate of authenticity, and a back-up mp3 file.
