The second student project presented from Paul Notzold's Me & My Mobile class at Parsons the New School for Design is by Julia Vallera, called Dear Diary,. Julia has created semacode t-shirts with entries from her diary that people can purchase and wear in public. She will also make custom shirts with your own diary entry. http://juliavallera.com/diary.html.
In her own words: All the QR codes used in this project are excerpts from my diary. I printed them on tee shirts and bags knowing they would be seen by hundreds of people. The idea of presenting something as private as a diary to the public in a code that requires specific technology to read is a contradiction. The message here is still private to a certain level, but presented in a very public way.
