Artist and blogger at Yiyung Lu created incredible art out of QR codes with a project entitled Beautiful Traps. In a time-lapse video, Lu incorporates QR codes into paintings of women wearing hats that feature carnivorous plants such as the Venus Flytrap. Scanning the codes with a smartphone takes you to a video of the painting process.
