One of four images. I'll upload the other 3 over the next few days.
No one was hurt during the taking of these images. :-) The rope was loose and all the effects (including the barcode) were added in Photoshop.
Although it's a 'scary' picture with all it implies, to me it also has a strange beauty. In a way reconising you are bound is the first step to freedom. The barcode is to indicate how much we are bound nowadays by brands and labels (not just the marketing kind either). We all seem to be held fast by the labels people attach to us to make it easier to put us into a drawer and forget about us.
