Daniel A. Becker's Barcode Plantage project creates unique trees from the information stored in barcodes. An international code database on the internet provides details on the manufacturer and the country of origin of the product, the data is then analyzed to define positions, curves and the colors of the tree structure. As the algorithm is simply interpreting the data, there is no random aspect to the appearance of each tree.
The project adds a layer of transparency to the source of our products and was selected as the Grand Prix winner for output 11, which will be published later this year.
