Douglas Coupland’s Digital Orca in Vancouver

While I didn’t spot any real whales on my recent trip to Vancouver, I did snap a photo of Douglas Coupland’s public sculpture, the Digital Orca, next to the Olympic Cauldron and the Vancouver Convention Centre. Also, there was a giant whale skeleton hanging from the ceiling at the Beaty Biodiversity Museum within the University of British Columbia. Between a fake animal and a dead one, I preferred the whale that doubles as a chair.


The Urban Forest at the McCord Museum

Earlier this month, I travelled to Montreal and was lucky enough to get a photo of The Urban Forest at the McCord Museum before it was removed. Designed by landscape architect Paula Meijerink, this hidden artificial park adds a bit of life to Montreal’s downtown core. Read more about the urban forest here.
