Foundin

2013 - Ongoing / Installation / Website and figurines

Foundin is an interactive, public art installation of tiny figurines placed in public spaces to be found by passersby.

Before the installation, a participant chooses a figurine online and says what they are waiting for in life. All figurines are then placed in public spaces.

When a figurine is found, the finder gets to read and reply to the message left by the Participant by accessing the unique URL printed on the card on which the figurine stands. The Finder can also contact the Participant privately through email.

All figurines are tracked on Foundin.org along with the messages and replies.
