Kimbra. By Vincent Fantauzzo Archibald Finalist 2012
2012 Archibald Finalist. http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/prizes/archibald/2012/29228/
The painting of Kimbra had an embedded QR code attached to the painting so that viewers could "listen" to the painting. The embedded video has had almost 1Million views during and since the Archibald exhibition. The painting has a multi media identity, where Art has embraced social media. Talking with a few people during the Archibald exhibition this embedding within a work of art is likely to become more prevalent / acceptable.
