QR code sculpture

QR SculptureQR codes provide a link between the real world and the virtual. This particular one blows my mind — a sculpture that renders a QR code using shadows cast by the sun, only at a certain time of day.

When I watched the video of the blocks forming the QR code, I thought of the ‘Map Room’ in Raiders of the Lost Ark. “And if you put the staff in a certain place at a certain time of day, the sun shone through here and made beam that came down on the floor here… and gave you the exact location of the Well of the Souls.”
