Hitman Mural QR Codes

Barcode artist Scott Blake was commissioned to create a 12ft x 9ft digital mosaic portrait for last week’s launch of the popular PlayStation, Xbox and PC game, Hitman HD: Trilogy. The portrait of the game’s principal character Agent 47 is composed of 9,985 UPC barcodes from the Trilogy game box and some hidden QR Codes (video below). Scanning the UPC barcodes provides information on where to buy the game and the QR Codes unlock the video trailer and artwork. The mural can be seen at 699 Third Street in San Francisco (images below © The New Science Agency Playa Del Rey, CA ).
