Contemporary Art in the Public Realm— Invisible Art

This painting is created and done by our group and it took us about 18 hours to finish the whole painting. Our original intension is to find something related to women and speak from women’s perspective. And when our group visited the Hunt Musuem, its jewelry section arrtacted us a lot and gave our group many inspirations, so we decided to extend from the jewelry topic to help us present and constitute our work. What’s more, we are also expecting to find a way that can combine the art with technology and use technology to deepen the concept of invisible, thus the QR code is employeed.

Here, we try to put invisible into this way- you may miss a lot of info at first sight of the painting since the color is really rich and attractive, when you calm down and get closer, you will find the difference and more messages. As for the information embeded and hidden in each QR code, that is a way to provide visitors a chance to discover and understand the meanings behind the beauty. Actually some QR codes are linked to the certain items displayed in the Hunt Musuem.

The Fun Theory

The fun theory is based on the thought that something as simple as fun is the easiest way to change people’s behavior for the litter. Be it for yourself, for the environment, or for something entirely different, the only thing that matters is that it’s change for the better.

The task is to utilize “The Fun Theory” to raise awareness and potentially prevent littering on campus. Our group decided to achieve this by projecting a scene from the hit 80’s game ‘Super Mario Bros.’ onto a projectiong screen, located behind a bin. When the user pllaces an item of rubbish into the bin, it triggers an image/sound event. By doing this, we have created an interactive installation which will hopefully add an element of fun to the normally mundane task.
