Visualizing Cinema As Barcode Data [Pics]

Digital technology reinterprets motion pictures in an uncanny manner.

Stephen Fortune

Moviebarcode.com uses a simple concept to provide a completely different insight into our usual experience of cinema. It compresses every frame of a movie into an individual sliver and then sequentially arranges them in a barcode – like composition. As Flowing Data notes:

Choice of color in a movie can say a lot about what’s going on in a scene. It sets the mood, changes the tone, indicates a change in point of view.

Check out the pics below and the Tumblr blog for more movie barcodes, which are also available as prints on the website.
