Scan, a window installation at the Fifty/Fifty Arts Collective in the spring of 2006,
refers to the function of barcodes as a function of transaction, and to the gaze that takes in the image of the barcode (“scanning” being a method used to transfer images digitally). Each barcode has the potential for meaning, yet this meaning is coded and therefore inaccessible. Taken together, they have a density and unreadability that is daunting. We see what almost amounts to white noise, but is still pattern and variation, an abstract code for a hidden language of unknown transactions.
