Scott Blake Scott Blake is an American artist that incorporates barcodes into his artwork. His work is very similar to pop art, as he uses everyday usual images to create his artwork. His early works were based on the idea of using barcodes to create images, he started using the barcodes in the artwork as a tool that made the artworks interactive. http://freshbump.com/graphics/image_files_480x400/480x400_qr-code-portraits-by-scott-blake.jpghttp://www.barcodeart.com/ http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Scott_Blake http://cdn1.lostateminor.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/Scott-Blake-2.jpg
Barcode Marilyn Monroe Scott Blake’s Marilyn Monroe portrait is made from close to 2000 barcodes, this is one of the works that shows how Scott Blake uses the barcodes in his artwork as tools. To create this artwork Scott Blake used UPC barcodes from the DVDs from the films that Marilyn Monroe has starred in. When the barcodes are scanned a projector behind the portrait lights up the column of barcodes in the portrait. When the barcode is scanned a monitor near the portrait plays a clip from the film that the barcode is for. The clips used from the films are Marilyn Monroe opening and closing doors, this links all the films together seamlessly. The barcodes in the portrait make up curved lines, this accents her curly hair and round cheeks, it also makes a reference to her curvy body. http://9bytz.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/04/scott-blake-scannable-barcode-portraits-1.jpg http://farm4.static.flickr.com/3593/5818800504_9dd2e783f6.jpgwww.barcodeart.com/artwork/portraits/barcodes/monroe_zoom.html
Barcode Andy Warhol Scott Blake’s Andy Warhol portrait is made of around 2000 UPC barcodes that are from Campbell’s soup cans that were part of Warhol’s iconic prints. The barcodes in the portrait are curved to mimic the shape of the soup cans. When the barcodes in the portrait are scanned a small display next to the portrait lights up an image of the soup can it came from. A projector also projects a clip of that kind of soup filling up a bowl in the center of the soup cans. There are also some barcodes in the portrait that show clips of Warhol. http://www.veezzle.com/photos/images/Barcode-Andy-Warhol-v5.0-by-Scott-Blake-038803820381b6372ab7.jpg http://i.ytimg.com/vi/trSDmKNWe0w/0.jpgwww.barcodeart.com/artwork/portraits/barcodes/warhol_zoom.html
For my set of Design Barcodes I was influenced by Design Barcode Inc. and Vanity Barcodes, I like thecreativity and designs that Design Barcode Inc. used, I was also influenced by the way the VanityBarcodes design their barcodes to fit the product and the company.
