Code:Love is designed to encourage visitors to participate in and connect with the exhibits using smart phones and code scanners.”
It also said: “As the ever-expanding reach oftechnologically-enabled instant gratification melds with an emerging urban culture of exhibitionism, the ways in which love is expressed and understood are being transformed. The days of waiting for a letter from loved one abroad have been replaced by immediate message and phone tracking devices. This show will unravel and examine some of these changes.
Bengal Art Lounge, Carefountain and a team of collaborators have created an exhibition is the message; the codes, sounds and lights are all statements on the commercialization of a romance and the role of technology in human relationships. The unconventional presentation is made to grab both people hearts and minds.
The exhibition is an affairmation of the power of art to benefit the lives of those closest to us, our family, the elderly-those in need of more love than we might even imagine. Carefountain, an enterprise committed to social good, believes that art has a social obligation. All of the proceeds from Code:Love will be donated to build a home for elderly.
