Following on from last week’s introduction to the GIFT project, Karin Ryding from IT University Copenhagen introduces you to one of its sub-projects: Artcodes, customisable scannable markers that allow you to blend your physical exhibition with digital content. Artcodes were used at the Museum of Yugoslavia to create a poetic and intimate experience addressing memories, conflict and forgiveness.
