“The Song for Itself”

“The Song for Itself” DataMatrix NP001/22 is a non-musical song that is also a QR code leading to itself.

The QR code was written on the stave using the Note Painting coding method and then painted on a 60 x 60 cm canvas with acrylic paint. The notation included the use of black and white.

The QR code image brought you here to see the analogue Note Painting code written on the stave and encoding.

Below you can see the original sketch of the code and download the PDF with the explanation and idea.

Open Studio Weekend 6-7th Oct 2018

I have the pleasure to announce I will be opening my studio doors on the first weekend of October.

You are invited to come along and see my original artworks all in one place, before they sail away to a gallery! Watch how new artworks are being created and be the first to take a peek at my new series of conceptual paintings.

Enjoy home-made cakes and tea while browsing through limited edition prints and hand-made greeting cards with colourful designs, perfect to cheer you up at the start of the winter season.

This is an informal and relaxing event where you can chat about anything, from the complexities of modern culture to how you spent your last holiday.

This event is part of Art on the Hill: The Windmill Hill and Victoria Park Arts Trail – Bristol UK. There’ll be plenty on offer within the trail, including workshops for children, a treasure hunt, a raffle with great prizes, and live music throughout the weekend.

See you there!

6th-7th October
11am – 5pm
