Big Commerce

Sean Hottois's avatar Sean Hottois

This 8' by 8' QR code embodies a dominant lucid representation of 'Big Data' merging with commerce to propagate a new force in our culture. Every time we interact with any online service we willingly surrender our identities to many undetectable commercial organizations with only monetary aspirations. Should the viewer choose to target their QR code readers on this work they will be presented with a web page that displays an image from the perspective of the artwork itself. In that voluntary action the spectator may quickly find themselves an involuntary exhibitionist at the behest of Big Commerce. Big Commerce - which has no illusions or pretensions of personal privacy or identity.
