the chromatic design by moviebarcode

When you discover the moviebarcode website, at first you may wonder what those lines are about.

The main concept is to compress each frame of an entire film in one pixel wide and accumulate them side by side into a single picture.

As a result, we get the whole colour palette (all the dominant colours of each shot actually) compressed in a bar code.

Sometimes you can even spot on the very right of the picture the end credits sequence, dark background with white pixels.

Although the idea is nothing new, if you are nuts about colours, this is a real feast.

More than 130 movies have been processed and prints are also available here.
