JR’s Inside Out Project

Don’t know if you already heard about it, but the TED Prize and famous photographer and urban artist JR (the 2011 TED Prize winner) developed a nice new project called Inside Out in March 2011. The idea behind this project is that you submit a portrait photo of yourself, which will be printed and send back to you so that you are able to paste the poster somewhere in the city…

Inside Out is a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. Everyone is challenged to use black and white photographic portraits to discover, reveal and share the untold stories and images of people around the world. (about Inside Out)

Furthermore they recently published the first episode of the corresponding documentary presenting the first massive pasting action in Tunisia! It’s just great to see which big effect personal pictures in public space can have on the society…
