Douglas Coupland

Gumhead is a seven-foot tall self-portrait that the artist has described as “a gum-based, crowd-sourced, publically interactive, social-sculpture self-portrait.” Viewers and passersby are encouraged to apply their own chewed gum to the sculpture so that over time it is transformed, eventually obscuring the artist’s face.
