Vancouver's 'Lego Shamu'?
Written by Robert Niles
VANCOUVER, British Columbia, Canada - So here we are hanging out next to the Olympic Cauldron, when something else caches my eye.Tweet
"What the heck is that? A Lego Shamu?"
It's actually "Digital Orca," a 25-foot sculpture designed by author and artist Douglas Coupland, the Vancouver resident best known for literally defining my generation by writing the novel "Generation X" in 1991.
From his description: "The 'Digital Orca' sculpture breaks down a three-dimensional Orca whale into cubic pixels - making a familiar symbol of the West Coast become something unexpected and new. This use of natural imagery modified by technology bridges the past to the future."
In another's words, it's just pretty darn cool looking. Even if it isn't a Lego Shamu.
