So I know that this article is old. But I’ve always remembered this piece and felt it was very creative and interesting.
A tattoo artist named K.A.R.L created the first animated tattoo back in 2011.
(The following link shows the article and video process of the creation and activation.)
I find it to be an interesting combination of stylized art and incorporating a QR code, which on one level is some mysterious image that is almost like that of an unknown text. But then also bridges the gap to technology and opens this moving and functioning video animation. Am I saying I would get one? not necessarily, but I do find it very intuitive and I think its a good interesting step in the right direction towards the future of art in all media.
What do you guys think about this?
