QR-3D Micro Commission: make, share and exhibit textile QR codes at The Cornerhouse Manchester with contemporary craft curator and cultural consultant Sally Fort. Share and exhibit your unique textile QR code.

After being struck by the code’s similarity to a knitting pattern graph or patchwork quilt, Fort devised the QR-3D project with Northern Ireland based fibre artist Inga Hamilton, and US based craft writer Betsy Greer.

Both professional craft-practitioners and hobbyists can submit work to QR-3D. Simply choose your website, turn it into a QR code and recreate this code with textiles. Add your creation to the online gallery by Sun 31 July, and a guest panel of craft and digital professionals will select pieces to go into a Cornerhouse exhibition, held in autumn 2011.

A QR code is a two-dimensional matrix barcode which is readable by dedicated QR code readers and enabled smart phones. These codes convey information which typically directs code readers to a website, a hidden text message, or other digitally stored information.

QR-3D is a Cornerhouse Micro Commission supported by the Paul Hamlyn Foundation. Cornerhouse Micro Commissions are open to professional and amateur artists, curators and producers living in the North West of England. If you have an idea for a new and innovative artwork, art project, exhibition, online or digital project that costs £500 or less, contact isabelle.croissant@cornerhouse.org or see the Micro Commissions page for more information.
