OFFF Review: Barcode Art

Artist Scott Blake creates interactive portraits using the scannable codes.

Catalina Kulczar-Marin

The three-day OFFF festival showcases top digital artists, web, print and interactive designers, motion graphics studios, musicians, and more. Scott Blake is a digital artist that uses barcodes to create art. He exhibited two of his pieces as a vendor at OFFF – barcode portraitures of Marilyn Monroe and Elvis Presley. When a barcode is scanned, a video with a particular theme would be play on a laptop. For example, every one of the 1944 barcodes on Marilyn Monroe’s portrait would play a short clip of her entering or exiting doors in one of her films when scanned.

A video of a barcode Bruce Lee and his fight scenes can be seen below:
