Where’s Waldo… in Vancouver

After a heads up from Carolyn I discovered that there is a larger-than-life Waldo (of Where’s Waldo fame) somewhere on a rooftop in Vancouver.

Waldo

It appears that this is a part of “Where on Earth is Waldo“:

For my graduating project at the Emily Carr Institute of Art Design and Media, I am creating a Google Earth Wheres Waldo inspired game. Players will be given the hint that Waldo is hiding somewhere in Vancouver and he can only be seen via Google Earth. In order to do this, a giant Waldo painting is being constructed and placed on a rooftop! The project will be exhibited at the Emily Carr Graduation Exhibit 08 opening May 3, 2008.

So… any guesses as to where Waldo is lying?

    Maple and 4th is my guess, but exactly which building it is I’ll have to find that out :)

    Do I win a prize?

    Hi! I’m involved in Melanie’s project and it is so exciting to see that the game has begun! I’ve written an article about the "Where on Earth is Waldo" project on my blog. It also looks at other current art that uses Google Earth as a medium. Also it has a 2007 photo of a huge (biodegradable) Homer Simpson that showed up on a British hillside next to the famous chalkdrawing fertility symbol "Cerne Abbas Giant". It also ironically reflects on the hot question in Starbucks: "Is google god?" Here is a link to my blog: http://cameofagebeforecomputers.blogspot.com/
