New Barcode Art from Scott Blake

One of our favorite artists, Scott Blake, recently updated his body of work to include barcode portraits of Elvis, Bruce Lee, Marilyn Monroe and Oprah. The art is not just made out of barcodes, but the barcodes themselves tell a story about the subject matter. For example, the barcodes used on Elvis’ portrait was made from barcodes off his CD’s, and Oprah’s was made with ISBN barcodes from her book club. Viewers are able to scan the barcodes with their smartphone, being able to hear and watch the subject tell their stories. Watch the video below to check out the barcodes in action:
