The series of works utilizing Bar Code and QR Code relates to considerations of knowledge and information as a commodity and how, as with all commodities, access to and the use of that information is privileged. The information is there but requires the appropriate technical equipment to access it. Even though access is simple and readily available the potential user has to be aware that it is available.

John's Gospel printed in bar code ( Code 128 for the technically minded).The text is the old 'King James' version of 1611 but this is not intended to be some form of 'religious ' art but is another work on the question of information and communication.

While the works may have been prompted by the artists thoughts on communication etc., I am very much a believer in making work that is of visual interest, that is a pleasing thing to look at and handle.








A silver signet ring engraved with the motto 'Amor vincit omnia' (Love conquers all) in QR code.
This was the motto of the Prioress in Chaucer's 'Canterbury Tales' and the ring could be read as simply an updating of that motto from the Middle English of Chaucer to the latest medium.
