About Scott

“My name is Scott Blake. I am a very frivolous artist and my work has been in fantastic art galleries. The New York Times, FHM, and Adbusters magazine have featured my Bar Code Art, in addition I was interviewed on Tech TV. This website has been reviewed in 13 languages and my work is in private collections throughout the world. I was commissioned to create custom art for the actress Jane Fonda and also by the University of Ottawa in Canada. The creators of Photoshop recognized my artwork at the 2002 Adobe Design Achievement Awards, held in the Guggenheim Museum NYC. I received a B.F.A from the Savannah College of Art and Design. I was born in Tampa, Florida 1976 (I am 30 years old) and I currently live in Omaha, Nebraska.”

Could someone please point out the artistic appeal in bar-codes?? I really can't find anything intriguing about it.
Other people have been doing things similar to Barcode Elvis since forever, e.g. Chuck Close's finger print painting of his daughter, and
I just feel like it's so far away from being original...
Maybe I'm just not deep enough to intuit. Anyone care to offer some enlightenment?
