Oh dear, it's been donkey's years since I last posted a message hasn't it? So here goes.
Is this Pop art or Op art? No neither or perhaps yes, both at the same time! Actually, it's Bar Code Art by Scott Blake, an american artist from Omaha. Barcodes come in different shades of grey, so that he uses them like pixels on a grid. What is really amazing is that he pushes the concept so as to use only barcodes related to the subject matter, which you realize when you scan them, thus making the work interactive. That's truly something!
