The Future Starts Now - a 20x30 meter ASCII by Rikki Kasso, 2010. Placed on the Mejiro Kindergarten in Tokyo. The ASCII art was based on a photograph, infused with numbers and phrases about learning in English and Japanese. Rikki:

As I thought more into it, it became clear that this text in digital form also known as a “font” was also a brand new language that children will grow up with as an automatic second written language. A “Neo-Neanderthal” age where symbols and icons are used to reform communication.

Sort of like was argued here. More here and here.
