Meta Menkveld has created a fantastic graphic design project using Microsoft Tag. The customization of the codes, the story behind them and the presentation of the project are worth covering. Here’s a summary of the project in Meta’s own words
"My project title is 'Everything is corn'. Because corn is in nearly every product we eat, I wanted people to realize how dependent we have become of corn (especially now the harvest of it fails). For my concept I created two layers. A visual one, with (Microsoft Tag) illustrations about corn and an invisible one with the amazing story (literally) behind corn. This second layer could only be discovered with a smartphone. I liked to use this hidden layer, because the use of corn in products is a mainly hidden world. The whole story is told behind 32 tags. Every tag tells a small part of the story."
"For the illustrations I changed the tag a bit. For my goal (to create illustrations), I found the dots of the code too big, so I tried to make them as small as possible (about 50% smaller). Also I changed the color of the dots. The white ones I turned into yellow and the black ones I turned into grey sometimes. I also tried to hide the dots of the code in the picture, so there's only an illustration (and no visible code)."
