My Barcode “OMAHA” Painting went with friend Justin Kemerling at The UNION’s Swap + Shop. Thanks Brigitte.

I use letters instead of numbers to encode the words: PAINTING, BLACK, WHITE, ORIGINAL, WARHOL, ARTWORK, BUDDHA, ALLAH, JESUS, CONSUMER, SELL OUT, SATAN. Every painting is made to order using top of the line archival materials. Each painting measures 12 x 9 inches. In addition to my signature and date on the back, every painting is numbered and registered owners are listed on my website. http://www.BarcodeArt.com/Barcode_Painting.html

Barcode Maria Raquel Cochez by Scott Blake

“Barcode Maria Raquel Cochez” is a digital mosaic made with 2,004 barcodes from foods she ate as child growing up in Panama. I created the original 5 x 5 feet digital mosaic on a computer using Photoshop. The barcodes can be scanned with a smartphone and it will show more information about the product. On the flip side I cataloged a selection of the barcodes used for the portrait. The 50 page flipbook is printed on 32 pound paper with screw post binding, which is one of the most archival book binding methods available. All of my flipbooks are signed and dated. http://www.barcodeart.com/Barcode_Maria_Raquel_Cochez.html

Excess Skin Flipbook by Scott Blake

This is my “Excess Skin Flipbook” showing a clip from a short video by Maria Raquel Cochez after she lost 100 pounds. The artist’s determination is to create a broader dialog regarding today’s standards of beauty, highlighting reality instead of fantasy. I met Raquel in college and we have remained friends ever since. I personally assemble these flipbooks in my studio in Omaha, Nebraska. All of my flipbooks are signed and dated. http://www.barcodeart.com/Excess_Skin_Flipbook.html
