CAPTCHA Codes as Street Art


Berlin-based artist Aram Bartholl is working on a project using CAPTCHA codes that he recently debuted at Graphic Design Festival Breda, a biannual festival on graphic design. It asks the question, “Are you human?” By taking codes from the internet and posting them in public spaces, on top of various graffiti works (which he calls a different type of “code”), Bartholl reveals their inherent similarities — both are readable only to certain groups of people. Click through for a video interview with the artist and images of his work, and leave a comment letting us know what you think.
