When you think of New Jersey, your mind isn’t whisked away to a magical island. Instead, you think of guidos, landfills and the all-time Asteroids champion. Sure, I’m from NJ originally, but that’s not going to keep me from hating on my home state.
But for once, New Jersey has something worth checking out. Mikyoung Kim Design has created this landscape installation that features giant luminescent barcodes scattered around the Ocean County Public Library in Toms River, NJ. The barcodes glow in an ambient state, giving the landscape around the library building a unique look. The goal of the installation is to get people thinking about digital patterns and such but I think kids will enjoy running around the lights at night. Keep it simple, keep it fun.
