Just sort of messing around today with a bunch of different simple premises - technology/bitcoin as art, hiding private keys in plane sight, adding value to art through bitcoin, etc - and came up with this.  It's really just a proof of concept, but imagine this hanging in a gallery.  In this case, admirers could donate to the owner from their smartphone by simply taking a picture of the piece.  But, on top of that, the private key to the bitcoin address that the piece represents is in the piece itself and there are even some hints in the peice to locate the private key.

Anyway, maybe it's a stupid idea.
Every time a block is mined, a certain amount of BTC (called the subsidy) is created out of thin air and given to the miner. The subsidy halves every four years and will reach 0 in about 130 years.

It reminds me of a wall rug like they make in Nordic regions.

I'm pretty sure a QR code would work as a pattern for one. I'd love to see one of those on some grandmother's wall...

Selling out to advertisers shows you respect neither yourself nor the rest of us.

Or how about a wearable QR code made with granny squares? And yes, I can make them. I can even do nettle point and knit (edit: and weave). Now I found this: http://nvate.com/653/qr-code/ A QR Art Gallery.
