The Stone of Trust is a living symbol whose variable content is fed by the artist in real time and can be read by interaction with the passer-by’s smartphone.
The stone of trust, stable and modest in its form and material, nevertheless betrays a strong desire for communication that is matched by the perfection of the 625 pixels of the QR code hand-modelled on one of its faces.
At a time when introducing unknown content into one’s own phone has become an anxiety-provoking and intrusive experience, this act of flashing allows us, through art, to hack into personalised algorithmic prediction, and thus to fertilise new possibilities.
