The Kyle Trowbrdige Politics of Time Exhibit is Inspired by QR Patterns

The Kyle Trowbrdige Politics of Time series of paintings has taken QR codes from the computer to the art scene.

This dot matrix collection of abstract art is representative of the way that the web and computer coding has infiltrated daily life. QR codes are traditionally used in advertising to direct a customer directly to a brand's website by scanning the code with their smartphone. This kind of coding is popping up all over and is being used more frequently because of how easily a big chunk of information can be transferred using only a small code.

However, the images are interesting to look at in their own right, and by adding a few pops of color, the artist has created an interesting collection. The Kyle Trowbrdige Politics of Time series is on display at the Dorsch Gallery in Miami.
