Barcode For GREEN

Bob Card has almost finished a five by eight foot bar code of recycled and salvaged woods. The woods include mahogany from a River Oaks home and an exotic wood from the old Warwick Hotel. Also native Texas woods - mesquite and pecan.
If you can read 'bar code,' this piece says GREEN. He'll install it in early June on Level 4 of the new Houston Permitting Center as one of my 'text interventions.' The woods are beautiful. Bob has labelled each strip of bar code with the wood's origin. He's created an elegant, sophisticated piece.
