For his ongoing “Copyrights” project , the British artist Phil Thompson has actual paintings manufactured based on the copyright-restricted — and therefore blurred out — images of paintings found on the Google Art Project . After taking screenshots of the Mark Rothko -like, distorted artworks, Thompson orders large-scale oil reproductions of the works from the Dafen Oil Painting Village in China, which has recently been caught up in internet censorship problems with Google.

Barcode Marilyn Monroe
Bar Code Marilyn Monroe, Scott Blake, 2011
“This is my Barcode Marilyn Monroe portrait made with 1,944 barcodes. I used the UPC barcodes from DVDs of the 22 films in which the actress appeared.
