Human-Sized Pin Toy



Lulu Guinness, a fashion designer in the UK, created this public art installation which invited people to create impressions of themselves with a giant pin toy:

The giant frame of pins is situated in front of the iconic London landmark, St John’s Gate and lets the public create full body sized portraits using the 6,000 chromed capped aluminum pins. Here are a few pics of the images created by passerbys.

There is one of these at the Children's Museum of Minnesota (or at least there was one when I was ten). It is as fun as it seems :)

This falls into the category of things that should have been thought of a lot sooner.

It must be quite the sensation to be on the other side of it, surrounded by pins.

I hope it becomes an international sensation.
