In Toronto's Union Station this week, there are people living in glass houses but they are decidedly not throwing stones. OK, it's not "people," it's one magician, and he's living in a glass box as part of a Halloween food drive.
As reported by The Toronto Star this morning, 25-year-old magician and social activist Scott Hammell is living in a glass box until 6 p.m. this Halloween in hopes passersby will stock his little 12-by-6-by-8-foot transparent digs with nonperishable goods for the Free the Children social justice charity, for which he works.
Grinning behind his plate-glass window, pumping away at his Twitter and Facebook accounts in his "Think We" T-shirt, Hammell tells the Star, he hopes people will make him "disappear" by filling the house's two-can-width glass enclosure. Sounds like an impending life-size Warhol to us, and one with admiral merit, to boot. We wonder how anyone could say no to this goofy guy (and fully support a national tour, by the way).
