Inception inspired QR code

inception qr code

For this code, the concept was to wrap a QR code around an impossible shape. Much of the movie inception dealt with worlds within worlds, and shapes/ times being represented in exponentially.  I wanted to create a piece of QR code art that reflected this challenge, and to do something new that I had never attempted before.

and it works.


Stickybits variations 2

My first thought was to have a unique stickybit code for each location I posted.  Then I wondered What if all stickybits linked to the same bit roll, thus allowing for multiple threads of conversation leading from multiple entry points.  Excited to try out a new UX for barcodes and brainstorm possibilities.

For this code, I considered overlapping the logo with the barcode, and experimenting with active and passive color areas to make the code pop more.  Although I love QR codes, I think there is something I like about the aesthetics of a linear barcode in terms of its shapes.

Scan either one of these codes with the stickybits application  ( to leave a message attached to this particular code.
