New Work: Abstract Barcode

I got the idea for this after I downloaded a free barcode scanner for my cell. As usual one thing led to another and I ended up with something that I like as an abstract image and something that actually works as a functioning barcode with a message. My phone scanner recognizes this on the monitor, but if it doesn't work for you, print the flat version above and scan that to see what it says.

The image is of a 36x84" digital print on paper, 2011. By Vincent Romaniello. Other work from this series can be found here.
