Gumhead

Gumhead

Vancouver artist Douglas Coupland seeked the help of the public by installing a seven foot black resin head on the lawn outside the Vancouver Art Gallery. He then asked the public to stick their gum on it over a 4 month period.

During this time, Coupland saw placement of the gum reflect on societal events and teachings. “People went directly to snot. They tried big earrings but they would fall off. During the last month, we’ve had the Ebola outbreak so everyone started doing hemorrhagic bleed-out from the eyelids.” (Taken from here).
