Douglas Coupland scans the heads of Canadian shoppers for new large-scale project

In his quest to create a portrait of Canada, artist Douglas Coupland hit the mall – or at least, Canadian department stores. Beginning in 2015, Coupland set up shop at Simons stores across the country, where, using a bank of 3-D printers, he scanned some 1,700 shoppers, who each received a five-centimetre bust.
