Digital Orca by Doug Coupland


We know, we know… “Leave the digital grind behind” is one of the 10 Golden Rules, but you should see this enormous outdoor orca installation by Canadian artist Doug Coupland. Doesn’t the Lego-like whale remind you our Orca 110 Black and White film? Paired with the new Fisheye 110 Baby Camera, it’s a match made in ocean heaven!

Digital Orca (2010) was a larger-than-life art installation by BC-based writer and visual artist Doug Coupland. Located outside the Vancouver Convention Center, the killer whale was made of powder coated steel armature with aluminum cladding, its black and white cubes made to look like an 8-bit image. The gigantic monument also lights up at night, perfectly set against Vancouver’s harbor, “making a familiar symbol of the West Coast become something unexpected and new,” says Coupland.

Do you have photos of the Digital Orca? We’re not sure if the piece is still on view, but in case it’s not, check out the new Fisheye Baby 110 Camera instead! It works well with an Orca too, except it won’t take up as much space. ;-)

The Fisheye Baby 110 Cameras are fully working miniature versions of the Fisheye No. 2 designed especially to fit 110 film. It captures the world in a full circle on a rectangular picture and enables you to capture perfect Fisheye pictures. The Fisheye Baby 110 comes with a bulb mode and is able to capture multiple exposures too. Load it with Lomography Orca B&W 100 and dive into the long forgotten world of 110 photography!
