An original piece from the series “Alphabet”, china ink on paper. 20 x 20 cm, 2001.
A barcode is the graphical representation of a series of numbers. What creates the aesthetics of a barcode? It comes from lines, their thickness, the spacing. We can think of it as a language with its composition rules, its grammar and its syntax. I imagined isolating these rules, separating them from the original purpose for which they were created, and I tried to change them gradually to invent a new language and perhaps new meanings.
