Douglas Coupland’s everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything

For more photos and videos from everywhere is anywhere is anything is everything, follow @vanartgallery on Instagram and browse the couplandvan hashtag.

Douglas Coupland's show at the Vancouver Art Gallery (@vanartgallery) is highly interactive. “It’s creatively satisfying to crowdsource objects,” the artist says. “In this show I have works made from crowd-sourced Lego, chewing gum, plastic bottle lids and cigarette foil. Anything can be beautiful.”

Visitors to the show have been encouraged to take pictures and share them with the #CouplandVan hashtag. “Much of the show is based on how we’re all collectively changing the way we see the world,” Douglas says. “Not allowing smart-phone photography seemed ridiculous. People focus in on what suits them the most. It’s interesting for me to see which slogans in the Slogan Room are posted the most.”

Spotlight: Vancouver

Spotlight Since launching, we’ve seen Instagram spread from our headquarters in the Bay Area to every corner of the globe. In this series we highlight top users from countries and cities with thriving Instagram communities.

Vancouver, British Columbia, is a city of contrasts. The myriad skyscrapers that support the area’s dense population sit in stark relief to the pristine bay and lush forests surrounding the city. And nods to the region’s diverse cultural heritage are apparent throughout the modern city—from public art to First Nations-inspired architecture.

Vancouver is also home to a thriving Instagram community with frequent InstaMeets and photo walks. Here are just a few Instagrammers sharing their city with the world:

  • Flo Lum, a chef and photographer frequently out in nature — @flolum
  • @akaalec, minimalist black and white photos of architectural patterns — @akaalec
  • Scott Rankin, photos from Vancouver and its lush surroundings — @othellonine
  • Maurice Li, photographer with a love of nature and building patterns — @maurice
