Your life-size chance to press the flesh

If you’re looking to make an impression next time you’re in Toronto, be sure to stop by the Fido Pin Art Display. It’s a life-size pin-art installation that lets you create a three-dimensional mold of your entire body á la Han Solo in carbonite. Sadly, your work will only last until more passersby press their meaty bits into it. (Click here to see a gallery of examples.) The exhibit was commissioned by Canadian wireless provider Fido and created by Toronto agency Bos as part of the historic Distillery District’s 175th anniversary. The Fido Pin Art Display will be up for about two years, in which time I hope someone will be spraying it with the occasional disinfectant. Thanks to Shannon at Glossy for the tip.
