Oh, look, it’s Madonna made entirely out of bar-codes. Someone has time on their hands!

That'll be 69p, please

We knew she was the Material Girl (do you think lazy writers will ever stop calling her that?), but making a portrait out of her entirely from bar-codes is taking the Fox’s Custard Creams.

And it’s not just random bar-codes. All bar-codes used in this image of OGL (by Scott Blake, in case you were wondering) are from products actually related to Our Lady herself (you know, the Ray of Light album, the SEX book, Juggs magazine).

He has done similar works, which take up to six months a piece, of Elvis and Oprah. He is also quite cute, though what good that’s doing anyone when he’s holed up searching the internet for interesting bar-codes is anyone’s guess.

The end.

  1. ‘Material Girl’ – *almost* as lazy as ‘OGL’. I prefer Burchill’s ‘Greasy Muff’ myself…

  3. Zzzzactly, Hard Candy! And at least OGL is apropos of something, whether you agree with it or not – Greasy Muff, on the other hand, could refer to literally anybody with, well, a muff.

  6. What about, ‘Mutton Dressed As Trout’?
    I don’t know why I said that, I actually j’adore Madonna and thinks she looks a treat. I think I just felt left out.

  7. We have three of Scott’s pieces in our offices. Our company is called Pop! Technology so his artwork was perfect for our interior designer’s concept of capturing “pop anyting.” Pop Art. Pop Music. Pop Religion. We bought his Madonna piece for our conference room, but in ours he used her CD cases instead of the barcodes. Our reception area has his Andy Warhol done in Campbell’s soup label UPCs. And my office is has a very large portratit of Jesus done in barcodes from bible.

    His artwork always stops people so they can spend some time viewing his work both up close and from across the room. We constantly have other companies in the building drop in to look at his work.
