  1. 1. Brian Gibson<br />“I am an artist who thrives on ideas” <br />
  2. 2. Brian Gibson is a visual artist who thrives on ideas. His work consists of photographic processes and conceptual thought, working in a diverse range of materials. His creations include framed prints, 3D work, interventions, projections, installations and collaborations.<br /> 
<br />
  3. 3. Archetypes<br />The starting point for this work began as a way of making links with the past and redefining that past. Working with the inheritance of old family photographs, and using digital software, I developed a method of reconstructing the identities of these people who are in some way connected to me (be it directly or indirectly). In re-presenting these individuals as archetypal characters they shift from their closed historical context to embody more universal characteristics and timeless identity.  <br />

Semacodes<br /> Semacode is a machine-readable two-dimensional code displaying information vertically and horizontally in a square format and increasingly found on billing items and advertising. <br />Barcode readers are an application available to android and smart phone users , enabling data or information to be gathered and exchanged freely by the public, opening of a wealth of possibilities for creative and social interaction. <br />Potential uses for such code tags are extensive: codes/tags on posters, for concerts and public performances that can be read to provide links directly to web sites.<br /> Tags across a city can be scanned and provide a body of text that is a fragment of a poem or story. Tags on trees and stones could provide clues and information on a nature trail . Tags can be presented in a multitude of ways: printed as flyers , tee shirts or badges, placed on trees and stones , incorporating traditional practices such as cross stitch and knitting and also as land art. <br />
