Mixing art with technology is exactly what Media Arts student Melanie Coles did for her graduating project. . . and it is bigger (literally) and better than most grad art assignments I've encountered (yes she deserves an A!). Melanie's project, entitled Where On Earth Is Waldo creates a Google Earth Where's Waldo inspired game. With the help of volunteers, Melanie and her team were able to create a gigantic Waldo painting to be placed on rooftops throughout Vancouver, Canada. The best part? Waldo will only be seen via Google Earth, so the entire world can play "Where's Waldo: Google Earth Edition" as well!
The project will be exhibited at the Emily Carr Graduation Exhibit 08 opening May 3, 2008.
