Beautiful QR Code Art

While there’s a lot of barcode art out there, artist Yiying Lu takes it to another level with her beautifully ornate designs. Lu recently released her latest collection, “Beautiful Traps,” which combines fine art, fashion, nature, beauty and fully functional technology.

Done in watercolor and marker, the paintings depict women wearing carnivorous plants as hats. The subtle yet functional QR codes were painstakingly integrated into the women’s hats. Once scanned, the QR code links to a video depicting the process of creating one of her scannable works of art.
