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.

Here are the rest of the pics from the June 4th, 2011, Manhattan Mayhem vs Queens of Pain Roller Derby Bout.

Queens of Pain defeated Manhattan Mayhem 184 to 76. I still thought there were a lot of great plays.

The owner, Nina Allen, also has a wholesale company Sweet Bella. I love the telephones! A lot of the stuff on the site is sold in the brick and mortar shop.

Denise and I were walking one night and it started to lightly snow. I looked down and on my coat there was the most perfect snowflake, it seemed unreal. Neither of us had ever seen snowflakes like that in the entirety of our lives. We didn’t believe it until another perfect snowflake landed next to the first. This picture is of that second snowflake. They were so beautiful. It was like magic…

That was the first time Denise and I experienced snow together.

All About Me

I start many things with good intentions, many, many things. This time I intend to stay focused. This time I will not leave behind what I started. This time it is larger and more important than my obsession with Martha Stewart, all design shows, and Teresa Witherspoon. :P This time it is about the greater good...this time I am serious.

Wanna cool, original, organic cotton, handmade, super fresh t-shirt? Yes you do...
