Color Codification Dot Drawings

Came across these today and fell in love - such a great combination of information design and fine art. I WANT ONE! :) Artist Lauren DiCiocco created this series and her explanation of the project is below -

"I call this body of work my "color codification dot drawings." To make each painting, I lay a sheet of frosted mylar over a magazine page. I assign a color to every letter (numbers are shades of grayscale) and apply tiny dots of paint over every character on the page according to my color-code. Making the paintings is a lot like solving a cryptogram and the result is a legible blur of dots in the form of the article’s layout, a kind of Braille for the color-inclined."

A few are for sale via 20x20.
