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.

Take a Seat, Make a friend

Take A Seat, Make A Friend.

Another genius idea by SoulPancake on youtube. Set up a ball pit and get strangers to take a seat and then get the conversation rolling by question prompts on balls all on life’s big questions. First question up is to share 3 things on your bucket list.

There’s something endearing about watching adults in a ball pit and to remember that everyone has an interesting story.

Have a great weekend guys!

Why walk when you can dance

How cool would it be if each major intersection crossing had music blasting when the lights turned green? Can you even imagine how much fun that would be if the songs changed each time? What about train stations?

The Fun Theory: Piano Staircase

How do you tell more people to use the stairs? By making it fun. The fun theory is that in order to change people’s behaviours for the better, you need to add some fun into it.

With news coming out that obesity rates are rising higher in Australia than anywhere else, maybe installing these piano staircases around town would be a good thing?

I’ve had a pretty busy and stressing week so I’m glad to be ending the week with this.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend. With some fun.
