Bar Code Art

Artist Scott Blake creates art from collages of bar codes.

While the site is a bit overly commercial (I suppose fitting well with the commercialism associated with bar codes), I like the portraits. A portrait of Madonna is constructed from bar codes from CDs. A portrait of Arnold Schwartzenegger is constructed from bar codes from movies. There a bunch of others, Andy Warhol included of course.

In addition, Blake offers flip books, images of shows, temporary tattoos, even custom barcodes. The website is well worth exploring, with many interactive elements. I think my favorite might be the images of titles. An ironic commentary on galleries!
