Barcodes are something we’re all pretty familiar with but we never stop to think about the information that is actually encoded. Daniel A. Becker, the creator of the Barcode Plantage came up with a program that transforms a simple product bar code into a unique tree in the garden of globalization. Once a barcode is keyed or scanned in, the program sends a request to the database, which returns a master file data. This master file is then analyzed to define positions, curves, and colors of Bezier curves of the tree structure. While the structure is being formed visually, the user will hear a melody that is based on the figures of the barcode. When completed, the details of the country of orgin, manufacturer, product number and sum are all displayed in a very attractive fashion. Who knew all those curves were hiding in those straight, short, black lines.
