The Giant is coming! (amazing video)

The Giant upon us

Montreal could be invaded by a giant, moving statue that could take the shape of any human form, or any prominent celebrity or personality from Albert Einstein, John Lennon or Beyoncé, and it could happen before the year is out.

Now before you head for the hills, or think it’s some twisted plot from a sci-fi drive-in movie classic from the 50s or 60s, please heed the following information.

The massive moving statue is actually an attraction that is 10 stories high and is billed as “the tallest moving statue in the world”. Its head and arms can move to a variety of positions, has the ability to speak or sing, and has a “skin” that is composed of millions of programmable LED pixels, in which it can instantly take the form of any man or woman, boy or girl, or historic or popular personality (such as the three mentioned above).

Conceived by The Giant Company that is based in Dublin, Ireland, and inspired by the classic novel Gulliver’s Travels by Irish satirist Jonathan Swift, there will be 21 of these “Giants” who are searching for 21 cities from around the world to be their home bases — whether temporary or permanent— by the end of 2021.
“The Giant will be one of the world’s most ambitious cultural and commercial projects bringing together art, amusement and wonder to create a contemporary and highly profitable business,” said Paddy Dunning, the man behind The Giant Company. “We envision The Giant as an adjunct to new urban redevelopment projects, stadiums, arenas, shopping centres, museums and other locations.”

See your city from the shoulders of The Giant

As well, The Giant will be placed atop a base that will serve as an exhibition space, where visitors can enjoy “The Giant Experience”, where they take a hi-tech journey into the world of not only giants of legend and mythology, but also the “giants” and unsung heroes of the city and/or country where The Giant will be located in. It can also be utilized as a stage for performances and presentations, and will include a roof garden for dining, retail and entertainment purposes.
