Hacking Remediation (2012)
The job of QR codes is to cross the bridge that spans from digital back to digital via the error-prone and imperfect domain of visual/optical.
When the QR code is out on the bridge, it is protected only by its error-correcting Reed-Solomon codes against interventions by visual/optical/physical adversaries. It turns out to be surprisingly resilient to this hostile and threatening environment.
A quick inspirational experiment in remediation, made for the Medea Connectivity Lab Live event in December 2012. Thanks to Job Van Der Zwan for pointing me in the right direction.
