Barcode is a roadmovie through an abstract virtual world. Travelling over and through landscapes the spectator is taken in a play of light and shade. Sometimes the light moves freely, then it is collected, reflected or transformed. The shades lengthen and crawl together. Quick spotlights create stroboscopic effects, race through curves and settle down. In the end the afterimage fades out and the spectator blinks. With Barcode Adriaan Lokman takes the abstract animation film to the twenty-first century: computer-generated and very, very sensational.
