Happy Birthday MESH - an Augmented Reality Surprise 

10

So many experiences have contributed to MESH and the world we live in over the last decade.

To celebrate, interactive artist Erin Ko has made a special edition of her work Seed Bank.

If you are in possession of a seed already, you can view its secret layer by downloading the app here:

for iPhone/iPad for Android 

If you would like to make your own seeds you can print and cut them out here

 

ABOUT THE WORK 

In an age where the noise-to-signal ratio is often high, our ability to pull meaning out from the overflow of information is key, to recognize a bigger picture, paramount.

Seed Bank is a collection of memories and moments; the experiences that make the present day what it is. The Seeds are physical objects created by deconstructing QR codes, and reconstructing them to make new vessels of information. The orderly fashion they previously had has been remixed from the very digital into something much more organic.

The experiences contained within the Seeds were gathered by MESH’s team, clients, and partners; they are both global and personal events that serve to illustrate just how much we are greater than the sum of our parts.

 

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Erin Ko is a visual artist from the United States. She combines traditional art making methods with new media tools to address our complicated love/hate relationship with technology. She is classically trained and has worked in video games and new media. She is the co-founder of Hutong Games.

Imperialism, consumerism, industrialization drive her crazy. Currently based in New York, e.Ko spends most of her time making art and randomly tripping around the world.
