Artist Creates Portraits Of Pop Culture Icons Using Barcodes
Florida-based artist Scott Blake has created various portraits of celebrities and pop culture icons using only the barcodes of items specific to the person to make up their individual portraits.
For example, in his barcode Andy Warhol portrait, he used the barcodes of Campbell soup cans that were part of Warhol’s iconic artworks.
He even created an augmented reality interface to go together with the portrait that would light up cans of Campbell soup once a barcode has been scanned—displaying the can of ‘virtual soup’ being poured into a bowl.
Other famous celebrities and icons whom he has ‘barcoded’ includes Elvis Presley, Marilyn Monroe, Bruce Lee and Ozzy Osbourne.
