simply painting a barcode onto a building means absolutely fuck all to me. I don't see what the big hoo-haa is. The idea itself is pretty cool but he should play about with it a bit more. I thought this was about changing barcodes like at the shop when you wanna buy comics worth $10 but only have $8.23 you may steal stickers off cheaper comics to fool the till guy, therefore allowing you buy comics and get change. see?

if you take a look at the whole thing, theres a section called "science," it pretty much shows you how to make your own barcodes & tells u what each part of it does. it even links you to a site that makes almost any type of barcode for you.

 

do what you want with that information...

So how would one go about finding out what types of barcodes are used at what stores? There are a number of different types to choose from, and many of them look exactly the same. This could be really, really cool if someone could get it working.

In November 2000, I put this 3 1/2 x 5 foot bar code up on an abandoned building near my house in Savannah, Georgia (on Barnard St. near 37th St.) I worked on this high-tech-tag for about 5 hours in the middle of the day, with no disturbances. This bizarre vandalism simply says, "Scott Blake was here."

BUMP

 

This is actually pretty interesting. I've incorporated barcodes into my pieces and stickers as well as stencils. I dunno I guess it's just a rebellious reflection of corporate America and their "barcoding" of everything. Plus seeing barcodes on buildings is actually poking fun at the new-age economy. It may also raise questions in the conscious and/or subconscious. Such as seeing an abandoned building as nothing more than a product waiting to be sold. It would be tight to get large fan-base of the barcode as they put it on everything imaginable. Buildings, blank billboards, large skyscrapers... anything.

nah stenciling is the easy way out. i think the fact that he took so much time to do it by hand & make it right is that much more fresh. it's like saying "damn, it took you 8 years to get can control like that? why don't you just use stencils?" sometimes its not about the easiest way to get job done. plus, he probably doesn't code the same thing in each piece. there's no point in stenciling something if you're never gonna use it again.

Someone should lock that guy in a room with

nothing but paper and empty Bics and have

him draw out all the barcodes for everything

for the rest of eternity...except right when he

gets down with one I run by real quick and

scratch at it and fuck it up real good-like. Then

someone else from Pacific Sunwear walks by

and compliments him on how 'super tite' his

barcodes are looking these days.
