Looking for something interesting to do this weekend? Well, Toronto is getting an emoji-themed installation. In fact, one giant thinking face, inviting you to really contemplate anything that might be on your mind.

Head on over to The Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) this Saturday, Oct. 19 in the Distillery District. This installation is part of a larger exhibit called the “Age of You,” which asks what it means to be an individual in the modern world and how the notion of self has shifted.

Curated by Shumon Basar, Douglas Copeland and Hans Ulrich Obrist, this exhibition features more than 70 visual artists contributing in different mediums. This exhibition begs the question “Guess what this century’s most valuable resource is? It’s you — and all your online behaviours, enriched data sets and millions of meta-data points.”
