Wednesday Night: Scott Blake’s Bar Code Art


One of my first projects here at the Museumsquartier is working with monochrom and presenting the work of Scott Blake [myspace] at the quartier für digitale kultur here in the Museumsquartier. Wednesday evening Scott will be showing some of his new works and talking about the theory behind it all. Here’s a short blurb from the MQ website:

“scott blake takes barcodes and turns them into art – art that is simultaneously pop and op, intellectual and personal, minimal and ocular. he employs the black and white symbol of standardization and efficiency – to craft a subversive style of digital pointillism. large-scale iconography of celebrities examines the relationship between the individual and the media commodity – the human being and his or her adaptation to pixilated, simplified cultural symbol.”
