Streetartist JR on TED 2011: Use art to turn the world inside out

Streetartist JR hat sich auf der TED 2011 seinen Preis abgeholt (Vorher auf Nerdcore: Foto-Streetartist JR wins TED Prize) und sein neues Projekt vorgestellt: „INSIDE OUT is a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. Upload a portrait. Receive a poster. Paste it for the world to see.“ (via Coudal)
