Douglas Coupland’s Digital Orca
I was sitting at my daughter’s dance class, messing around with my phone, when I came across this photograph that I had forgotten about. It’s Douglas Coupland’s Digital Orca sculpture found on the waterfront in downtown Vancouver. Coupland, famous for books like Generation X and Girlfriend in a Coma, does as much art as writing.
The Digital Orca looks like its made from black and white Lego, and the kids really enjoyed looking at it. On one side is the water and the mountains, and the other is the tall offices of Vancouver’s business district.
