Today I visited our Uncovering the Invisible exhibition on display at the Wallner Gallery in Lakeside Arts, Nottingham and attended the artcodes workshop led by Horizon Hub where we learned to create and power up our own artcodes. It was a great experience to see how this technology works and listen to visitors comments and suggestions regarding the content of the show in combination with such codes. Finally after a three year wait we did it! Pablo and I would like to extend a big thank you to The University of Nottingham, Professor Catherine Davies who was key in making this happen alongside the invaluable support and input from Laura Carletti and her colleagues at Horizon Hub, Boriana Koleva and Susan Ali.
The exhibition is open to the public until 11th September 2016 and is free for all.
The exhibition Uncovering the Invisible: Portraits of Latin Americans in the UK is offering a free workshop on artcodes - the accompanying technology for the show especially designed by researchers at Horizon Hub - where you will be able to listen to the voices of the people portrayed whilst having the opportunity to draw your own patterns and link them to a recording of your own story or reaction to the exhibition.
Artcodes is an image recognition technology that allows you to create beautiful machine readable markers. By pointing a smart phone or tablet at an image the viewer can unlock hidden digital content.

Coinciding with the Summer Olympics in Rio, Uncovering the Invisible is a photographic collaboration between British-Mexican photographers Pablo and Roxana Allison focusing on the diversity of backgrounds and life-stories of Latin-American people living in the UK. The exhibition has been funded by the University of Nottingham and the Horizon Digital Economy Research Institute (University of Nottingham). It incorporates state-of-the-art digital technology developed at Horizon and brought to us by Dr. Laura Carletti, so that visitors may hear the voices of the Latin-American men, women and children who feature in the photographs.
