Do you remember those pin art toys that created a 3D impression of whatever was placed on its backside? Popularized back in the 80s, at the time, they were pretty darn cool. This life-sized version of the toy is an art installation presented by British designer, Lulu Guinness. The Be a Pin Up! installation was created for Clerkenwell Design Week and allows visitors to interact with the installation and make their own pin impressions, making them a real life pin-up in a different sense. This giant frame of pins lets the public create full sized body portraits using the 6,000 chrome capped aluminum pins. If you had the chance to visit the installation, what would your pin-up pose be like?
