In 2011, I created a tiny experimental project using the (boring) QR code. In case you don’t know, a QR code is a type of matrix bar code that any smart phone can scan. After the quick scan, it takes you to a URL that the creator set it to go to.
First, I printed (business sized) cards. I would leave them in the most random places. I also gave them away so people can leave them in random places as well. If you scanned the card, it would take you to a site I made for it: hearingblue.com. Keep in mind the site was built in 2011 and haven’t touched it since then; the site is in dire need of a makeover.
In January 2015, I excitingly used my 20% coupon from my favorite printers to print “hearing blue”. I printed the tiny zine on a 8.5″ x 5.5″ sheet and cut it evenly into three. The final result makes a 2.75″ x 2.7″ zine. The purpose of the zine is to left in random places. Pass them around and share it with the whole world! The zine is only 12 short pages with about 102 words. (I counted the words manually so it could be more or less words.)
What inspired me to write “hearing blue”? I’ve always been a big believer that perception is power. Hearing blue is just a simple and fun way to express that philosophy.
