Drawing: Ink on Paper.
An original piece from the series “Alphabet”, china ink on paper. 20 x 20 cm.
A bar-code is the graphical representation of a series of numbers. What does creates the aesthetics of a bar code? It comes from lines, their thickness, the spacing. We can think of it as a language with its compositive rules, its grammar and its syntax. I imagined to isolate 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.
