    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.


    The figurines disrupt one's preoccupation in the metropolis and ask city dwellers to be more aware of their surroundings.
    All figurines in Foundin are individuals seeking to be found in one way or another, just like every one of us.

    Before the installation, an Adopter (anyone in the world!) chooses a figurine online and tells Foundin what he/she is waiting for in life.
    All figurines are then placed in public spaces.
    When a figurine is found, the Finder can keep the figurine. Using the unique URL or QR code printed on the figurine card, the Finder gets to read and reply the message left by the Adopter. The Finder also can contact the Adopter by email, if he/she wants to be in touch.
    Summarised on Foundin.org, all figurines are updated "live", whether they are "Found", "Lost" or "Waiting".
