INSIDE OUT: A Global Art Project

TED Prize Winner JR & INSIDE OUT from TED Prize on Vimeo.

A simple and gorgeous project from the artist, JR. I wrote about his last project a little while ago.

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.

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. These digitally uploaded images will be made into posters and sent back to the project’s co-creators for them to exhibit in their own communities. People can participate as an individual or in a group; posters can be placed anywhere, from a solitary image in an office window to a wall of portraits on an abandoned building or a full stadium. These exhibitions will be documented, archived and viewable virtually.

INSIDE OUT is a collaboration between the artist JR, the TED Prize and you.

Happy New Year. More Ahead!

Half a year’s worth of papers that haven’t yet been filed makes me excited to think about everything we did this year and what we’ll do over the next twelve months.

Also, we need to figure out when we can meet in the new year. Are Friday nights still any good for anyone?

Happy New Year!

Ambassador Bridge Website

Y’all know i love the bridge. The damn thing is tattooed on my back. So, I google searched Ambassador Bridge, and found it’s official website!

The history section of this website is pretty interesting but i think the photo section is lacking extremely.

Everyone takes pictures of the bridge! There has to be more historical ones lying around the city as well as new ones.

If you have some, send them to with the subject “more bridge photos for your Ambassador Bridge website.”
