RE-BLOG: David Scrimshaw’s Urban Inukshuk


OttawaStart is on a short summer haitus this week, so we’re re-posting some of our favourite posts from the past few years.  This one was originally published on September 12, 2008, by one of Ottawa’s most creative bloggers, David Scrimshaw.

You have to check out David Scrimshaw’s blog for his account of how he built the amazing urban inukshuk pictured above.

David says: “A couple of years ago, I told Keane I wanted to make an inuksuk … Unlike on the barren tundra, flat rocks are hard to come across here in the centre of Ottawa. So I decided to use urban materials. Keane happily agreed to help me in the quest and between the two of us we amassed a good collection that was kept, of course, in my basement.”
