This week on the show my guests are artists Ray Sweeten and Lisa Gwilliam. The two artists, who exhibit under the name DataSpaceTime, recently had an exhibition of their work here in Brooklyn called “The Optimum Value for Y.” The exhibition was based around portraits and wallpaper made with QR codes — those matrices of black and white squares we see on advertisements and posters that, when scanned with a smartphone, can link the user to anything from a website, to video or text. The way that QR codes link physical objects to bits of data and content on the web, is central to Ray and Lisa’s work. I spoke with them recently in Brooklyn about their interactive QR code prints, the special mobile app they built to explore the prints, and how viewers are feeding their own data back into the artworks.
