i found waldo

Artist Melanie Coles recontextualizes childhood favorite- Where's Waldo- into the digital realm. Riffing off installation, site specific works by artists such as Christo, Coles created a giant Where's Waldo on an undisclosed rooftop- encouraging viewers to "find" him via the internet program Google Earth. The program allows users to view sattelite images of earth. What differentiates her work from similar atecedents, however, is that rather than photographic documentation, or even public visibility, her piece is viewable only through internet technology. -Sasha
