Yesterday, the Globe and Mail had a story about redoing an old building:
Inspired by U.S. artist Scott Blake, who created Barcode Jesus (a shroud of Turin-type image made up of thousands of tiny bar codes), as well as the basic grid structure of the 1965 building, Acton Ostry also incorporated the blues and greens of legendary local artists Jack Shadbolt and B.C. Binning to create a mid-century inspired look that feels very contemporary.
Barcode Jesus, a Shroud of Turin-type image? I had to find it.
Here it is. Click on the image or HERE to go to the artist’s site. Then be sure to click on the zoom bar to see the barcodes, an imaginative way of implementing halftone.
