Foundin is an interactive, city art installation of tiny figurines placed in public spaces to be found by people like you and me.
The heart of the project is the online count of "Found" figurines, which hopefully inspires a growing audience to head out and actively explore the city in detail; to notice art in a different scale and perspective.
