You probably already met QR codes on flight tickets, or on Budapest public transport tickets. They look like a square pattern put together from black and white smaller squares. Such a patter may hide textual information, personal data (like on a business card), an URL with sound or movie clip. The hidden message may be decoded by a camera and a QR reader software - available also on smart phones. In this course we set out to invent novel, exciting applications- both considering the medium, the graphical design and the purpose of the message.
Just a few ideas for making QRs
    - from paper: bag, serviette, shawl, ...
    - as jewelry: earring, buttons, belt ...
    - from textile: knitted shawl, embroidery, printed T-shirt, carpet or curtain telling a story.

But you may think of tattoo, cakes, embedding it into photos, paintings or graphical prints, ..
At the end of the course the inventions will be exhibited and demonstrated at MOME, and the public may vote for the best idea.

Tuesday:       testing materials and designs (PZs-RZs)
Wednesday: working on realization (RZs)
Thursday:     working on realization (RZs)
