QR Code Reader for Tuesday Keynote

Our first keynote speaker, Michael Takeo Magruder (takeo.org – Artist-Researcher in Residence at the British Library Labs) will briefly introduce his work and his approach to visual art. The rest of his keynote will be more interactive and he will bring some of his art.

In the interactive part, you will be able to explore some of his art with your own devices. In preparation for his keynote, can I please ask you to install a QR code reader app on your mobile devices.


If you are on iOS, I recommend the Kaspersky QR code reader (which works very well with his art): https://www.kaspersky.co.uk/qr-scanner (the link to the iTunes App store is on the Kaspersky website)


If you are on Android, he would recommend the Barcode Scanner by ZXing Team: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.google.zxing.client.android&hl=en
