A new interactive installation from ::vtol:: lets one print glitch art generated by the scan of a barcode:
post code installation converts barcodes as a symbol of consumerism and the digital, virtual communications age into a device that encourages personal communication.
If you put any packing with a barcode to scanner, it will print postal glitch cards with the image generated from the digits encoded in and play sounds also generated from code.
Thus, such exclusively digital object becomes means of obtaining an artifact, suitable for archaic, but ultimately human mode of communication – a postcard.
