    The City of Vancouver Public Art Program announced a new video animation by Associate Professor Diyan Achjadi, currently screening
    on the double outdoor screens, operated by CoreVision, at the north-east corner of Robson and Granville Streets. The four segments of the video

    In these animations, Diyan's avatar "Girl" encounters the landmarks of
    Vancouver and interacts with them. As she picks them up, they become a
    miniature collection of objects. After landing in Vancouver, Girl visits
    the Harbour Centre Tower, the Gastown Steam Clock, Gassy Jack's statue
    and Science World.
