A barcodeis the graphical representation of a series of numbers. What does creates theaesthetics of a bar code? It comes from lines, their thickness, the spacing.We can think of it as a language with its compositionalrules, its grammar and its syntax.
I imagined to isolate these rules, separating them from the original purpose for which they were created, and IIn these drawings, the invention of the map of a city is only a pretext. Gradually, by changing the shapes, colors and the hierarchy of associations between the various elements I explore the possibilities of changing this language increasingly moving away from its original meaning.
