I found the INSIDE OUT project through TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design). The deal is someone takes a close-up picture of you in front of a plain background, you submit the photo telling them what you stand for, care about, your story, they send you back a poster of your photo, you put it up somewhere public, take a photo of it and then upload it here. With the help of my amazing photographer, Denise Espinal, I am submitting my photo to insideoutproject.net, using art to change the world.
What is the point you may be wondering. It was JR, a graffiti/street artist from France who came up with the idea, “to use art to turn the world inside out”, at TED2011. Check out this video, it’s bad ass. It makes you see how doing something so simple changes people’s perception with a positive outcome. One person pushing forward, I like that.
“I wish for you to stand up for what you care about by participating in a global art project, and together we’ll turn the world… INSIDE OUT.” – JR
You should do it. Let me know.
