[User Picture]10:40 pm - My contribution to the revolt...


Able to be decoded by many cell-phones and industrial scanners, as well as via on-line means, this image is theoretically illegal due to it's highly machine-readable nature.

Personally, I like how it looks, and tuned all the image-generation parameters to make an image that was easy to look at while still possessing depth of both visual keying and meaning; the former with some hand-tuned blending of the underlying QRCode image primarilly, the latter as a form of protest message.

I experimented with making this image using the Hacker Symbol of the Glider from Conway's game of Life but it was too generic, almost pop-artish compared to the combination of visual 'analog fuzz' from the DataGlyph layered with the distinctly 'digital edges' of the underlying QRCode.

And yes, I tested this. It can be processed correctly as a QRCode, albeit akwardly. Works best with a simple blur filter to add some grayscaling, as too many of the on-line systems see a 1-bit image and apparently think they're being handed a pre-processed QRCode.0 commentsLeave a comment
