• Science World•

    Another quintessential Vancouver scene: Science World, built back in 1986 for Expo, is one of my son’s favorite places to go. Then there’s the backdrop of BC Place along with Wall Center (far left) and the ubiquitous Scotia Tower. Science World is now known as “Telusphere” due to corporate sponsorship. It’ll always be Science World to me just because I always want to lisp when I try to say “Teluthpere.”

    The things I liked about the source photo were (1) lots of blue, (2) lots of rounded shapes, and (3) lots of Crayola color that I could emphasize in the posters.

    There’s a lot of up-and-down tumbling movement to this one, like hyped-up kids on sugar. There you go: no deep meaning, just fun. Kind of like a field trip, perhaps!
