The Bar Code and Bag Art of a Lad in Seine

From the catalog essay by Mikal Fobgrist:

No one does Bar Code art like a Lad in Seine (ALIS). No one has the patience, the fortitude, the drive, the moxie, to nail Bar Code art to the wall and let it sit there wriggling and gasping for breath. No one but a lad in Seine. (cue echoing trumpet solo from Patton).

Just to be clear: no bar codes were killed, just altered and sent to a place in Mananganoor where ALIS has close friends.

Regarding the Bag Art...all we can say is, thank you, Dean, for years of strange and funny cards. Of course, the birthday bag touched me deeply though I had difficulty extracting the contents.
