John’s working on an amazing art project with the Simons chain of department stores and celebrated artist and author Douglas Coupland. Over the course of the next several months and coinciding with Simons’ expansion across Canada, the #3DCanada team will scan the faces of Canadians across the country and produce miniature busts of each person. Not only will they have a 3D keepsake, but at the end of the project, Mr. Coupland will produce a work of art literally showcasing the face of Canada in the 21st Century.
Check out the 3D Canada video below.
I dropped by to cheer John on, and to meet Doug Coupland. (I confess to being rather starstruck.) And of course, I took some photos.
Here’s my #3DCanada experience at the Simons Park Royal location.
And of course, I had to take a selfie.
It was a fantastic experience, the Simons store is gorgeous, the crowds were huge and enthusiastic, and it was particularly rewarding to see so many parents and kids there. I can’t wait to see – and photograph – the culmination of the #3DCanada project in the next year or so!
