Consider this object without technology. A thick maple board with a geometric design burned into its surface whose function you may or may not remember. As a disabled quick response ( QR) code, it becomes an artifact of a time when technology enabled us to leap across all kinds of boundaries; physical, political, informational and linguistic. Imperfectly transcribed, and here lying on a sidewalk, It becomes an “Oxymoronic Object". It is, in fact, the QR code for this location, the QR code of itself.
