That time, when art was spelt with an AI
It is week one of the EOFY and I have to say, I am thriving. At this time of year, there is always a changeover of clients in accounting and
bookkeeping practices. New businesses are starting, and old ones are retiring or selling up. This gives an injection of new enthusiasm to
our busiest time. I had the opportunity to meet up with one of our new clients just last week. They are a young and dynamic skateboarding
retail store in West End called Middlestore. Check them out at the below link.
We started chatting about one of my favourite topics, that is, how can we use AI to power clever businesses. I had thought that I was not a
complete numpty about AI, but my client opened my eyes to a use of which I hadn’t heard. Did you know that you can now create AI-generated
QR codes that take the concept of "artistic utility" to new heights? AI and QR codes may not seem like an obvious combination but
trust me when I say that the results are nothing short of mesmerizing.
When I hear "QR codes," I typically envision those black-and-white squares that hold URLs and information that we all became so
familiar with during the COVID restrictions. However, with the advent of AI, QR codes have been transformed into artistic masterpieces that
can captivate the eye and stimulate the mind. We are not just talking about an art piece with a traditional QR code hidden in the corner. We
are talking about art pieces that are the QR code. Mind blown! My nerdiness just became artistic!
There are other artistic uses as well. During my research, I read about an art exhibition where QR codes were ingeniously incorporated into
the artworks. Each painting had a unique QR code strategically placed. Scanning the codes with a smartphone transported the viewer into a
world of artistic immersion including taking the viewer to behind-the-scenes footage of the creation process. The QR code acted as a portal,
bridging the gap between traditional art and technology.
So, how do you jump into using these artistic tools? Check out some software applications available now that harness the power of AI to
generate stunning QR codes that double as works of art. Below are a few notable ones:

side, AI-powered solutions have got you covered! AI is showing that it not only for automating our work experiences, but it also can provide
unique avenues for creative expression in our daily lives. So, I am off to be a creative accountant in the best sense of the words.
