Mobile Media Sharing through QR-Codes and a Thermal Receipt Printer.
Every QR-Code posted in public space by stencils, stickers, flyers, posters is linked to canonic novels, publicly available on the web (www.gutenberg.net)
- due to the expiry of their licence ship they are now under the creative commons. A webpage designed for an easily digestible urban reading experience pops up on one's portable device displaying the associated novel and the story unscrolls.

The thermal receipt printer functions as a data visualizer - every QR-scan on a smartphone or tablet triggers the printer installed in the studio space to print a paragraph of the novel linked to that code. As a result, a 30 foot long paper trail made up of literary snippets shows which QR-Codes were scanned in what order. A collage of Frankenstein, Metamorphosis, and Alice in Wonderland etc. concluded the project as an exquisite corpse.
