Andy Molholt Makes QR Codes Out of Legos
First off, LOOOVE this idea!!
Honestly, I didn’t even know this was possible, but it works… And where does the QR code take you? To Andy’s band, Laser Background‘s, app where you can listen to their music, check out their new video, and follow them on Twitter.
I know what you’re saying, this isn’t art for art’s sake. But honestly, what street artist is doing street art strictly for the sake of art? Everyone’s trying to promote something. And the true value, as I see it, is in taking risks, and finding an original voice, no matter what the medium.
Why Legos, you ask? Well, as it turns out, Andy takes a lot of inspiration from his early childhood. He even describes his band’s sound as “psychedelic pop from deep-space childhood.” And it’s not just Legos. One of Laser Background’s songs even uses a pretty familiar Nintendo tune.
Laser Background will be releasing their EP this Thursday (7/19) at Kung Fu Necktie, and Andy plans to continue the Lego QR codes around the city and on tour with his band.
Siiiiiide note: the woman in the first photograph’s name was Maryanne, and she was sweet as hell, asking us all about the installation and then about Andy’s band… The shirt she’s wearing has a photo of her older brother on it, who recently passed away and who’s birthday it happened to be yesterday. So sad. Just wanted to give her a shout out.
