QR codes are seemingly ubiquitous these days – in newspapers, on trains, in art galleries, in signage of all types. Individuals and companies are getting more and more creative about how these codes are used. Artaic is jumping on board and providing another creative, and more permanent medium to display the codes. These QR code mosaics are the epitome of what Artaic is all about – combining the beautiful ancient art of mosaic with modern technologies.

The codes don’t only have to be website links, text can also be imbedded into the codes. The tile QR codes could provide interesting insights into their installation locations, telephone numbers, or humorous quips.
This cafe wall mosaic contains a collage of quotes, fully engaging the cafe’s “users.” Some of the Quotes include: “When you’re curious, you find lots of interesting things to do.” “Come with me, everything will be alright.” “There is no abstract art. You must always start with something.” “People only see what they are prepared to see.”
Imagine waiting in line for the restroom and every step you take, you’re standing on another hidden message on the floor below you (Though a restroom might not be the ideal place to have people start taking pictures with their phones). The QR code mosaics begin making architecture an interactive experience.
Run any website, text, or phone number through a QR code generator and think about a creative way of incorporating it in your next tile installation.
