Bar Code Collage


I've always been fascinated by bar codes. This collage took me much longer than expected. Almost all the bar codes used are from things lying around my house. The glue was destroying my receipt bar codes, most-likely because they are printed on thermal paper. Also, here is a bar code fact: The first product to have a bar code included was a packet of Wrigley's Gum. I'm not surprised. :)

Here are some bar code links:

Thanks.
And you're right, I was thinking about that too, making this as a sort of pattern for something (anything!). :)

I guess once I declare something as boring, I'll cover it up in these and see how that turns out.

How big is this piece?

wallflower said...

Nat,
it's about 9 inches by 12 inches. Very messy, but I think I'll make some other kinds of bar code artwork in the future!

this is excellent. my dad actually writes the program for bar codes. when i was a kid he took us on a tour of his company - it's interesting.

REEEALLY RAD!!! I love it. Then again, I love all your stuff. hehe ;)But really, this was a neat project. And thank you for the barcode trivia, I have a new wrinkle in my brain. I love it when someone tells me something new.
