Homeless Projection, Wodiczko 

Wodiczko uses the facades of buildings and monuments as his canvas. He projects slides or videos on their surfaces with the purpose of drawing the public's attention towards issues that are socially unsavory, in this specific picture: homelessness. Wodiczko even went around during the day, asking homeless men and women to display their belongings around the base of his monument now transformed into a bundled up homeless person. This alone helped to enhance the reality of his message.
