Scan to Go


The College Art Association Services to Artists committee in collaboration with v1b3 (v1b3.com) are producing a printed catalogue of digital media art works entitled SCAN2GO. The catalogue will represent the artworks by printed QR codes, which function to connect viewers to digital media art works by using a smart phone.


The SCAN2GO catalogue will be dynamic for one year.

Artists will be assigned a QR code (printed in the catalogue) that links to an artwork.
Every four months each artist will provide us a new artwork for the QR link.

The printed catalog will be distributed during the CAA conference in Los Angeles, February 22-25, 2012. The QR codes are linked to a web address/url that shows an art piece (sound art, video, code pieces or web art) that will be viewed on smart phones and camera enabled tablet computers.

My Alaska, too

Permanent Media Art Installation in the Centerpoint West Building Lobby in Anchorage, Alaska

My Alaska, Too combines writing and images to reveal multiple perspectives of people when they wonder, “What is Alaska like?” The result is a portrait made up of samples from people who visited for a short time or lived here long enough to call it home.

Printed on the top row of glass are edited comments by people who live in Alaska addressing why they live here. It seemed to us that whether they moved here or were born here there was an attitude about being or of passage growing up Alaskan is deciding to stay or move.

The ribbon of six monitors display photographs tagged with various unique Alaska subjects. Every twelve hours (7AM to 7 PM) the computers that search for the pictures retrieve more than 50,000 photos. They are made and shared by many individuals who have in common their experiences in Alaska. The collection of images seen over time shape what is commonly and uncommonly a dynamic state of being in Alaska.

On the third row are various forms of poetry written by Alaskan writers. They were selected to reveal the relationship that these artists have with the landscape, nature and people in Alaska. Their work is ironic, humorous and serious. It requires more time and contemplation than the content above it but the poems provide an opportunity to glimpse at the sublime order and perspective of Alaska felt by Alaskans.
