Between visible and invisible

You hardly see anything, only large pixels. But you can see much more. And it's easy. You know how the pixels are arranged. They are QR codes.

Let's go!

But… to see something more, sometimes you have to do something yourself:
Visible Change!

Would you like to see what others are seeing right now?

Or do you want to see a lot more?

Go on:   to the Videos!

Digital Art

Visible Change is a larger work and includes many images, image sequences and videos. There was also a digital background with websites, database and some code required. All pictures, videos and also the digital background I created myself, because ready-made apps and programs did not and does not exist for such a project.

In my opinion, digital art should not only focus on digital pictures. The digital technology for display is also part of this.

Visible Change is primarily intended for exhibitions. You can also view the images on your screen, Watch tablet or cell phone. You don't need to install any app, an up-to-date web browser (no matter what kind) and a mobile phone is enough.

Visible Change

I see what you don't see.
And if you want to see more, you have to be active by yourself.

We know it, that's easy. Scan the QR code with your cell phone and you're done. The picture is shown on the mobile phone.
But people who are also present see nothing. Also the picture size on the mobile phone is too small, just barely enough for one eye.

Visible Change can help here

A projector (a larger TV screen or desktop is also possible) shows a channel on my website.
This channel alternately shows QR codes with an underlying one barely visible picture as well as title and some notes in bernese German dialect, High German and English.

Now it's up to you! You have to be active!

You have everything you need. The QR reader in your mobile phone is enough. You don't need to install an app. There is no contact tracing, no data is collected either. You will only see an ordinary website on your phone.

You see the pictures on your mobile phone and the people around you around on the appropriate channel, beamer or big screen.


The pictures you can see here are not videos, as might be assumed at first glance. The image sequences consist of individual images. There are some very heavily digitally edited photos, which are shown one after the other in the browser.

The QR code only contains a link. This is the respective address to a website on my homepage, which enables the display of the image sequence. With this you can see the image sequence on your device.


However, in order to show the image sequences to all people in an exhibition, I came up with a special technique. And it works like this: when the web server receives a request for an image sequence, it sends the individual images first to your device and then to a second website, the corresponding channel, which is shown on a projector or screen.

You are here on the web...

You can also watch a channel on any of your devices. The links are in the chapter «The Channels» Open the browser in full screen mode if possible.
Then take your phone and scan the QR code. You will see more.

In contrast to many other websites, such as Facebook, no personal data is collected or stored from you.

Digital art – slightly expanded

As you can see here, this is an advanced way of displaying digital images.
