JR | Inside Out Project

Perhaps you already know about this project, because it's everywhere! This project started 2011 when the the artist JR was announced as the winner of the 2011 TED Prize with his talk: 'Use art to turn the world inside out'After that he made a massive impact encouraging people to take part. JR wanted to include the public in the artistic process and ”transform messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work.” As he told the New Yorker magazine, “Now I am just the printer.”
INSIDE OUT gives everyone the opportunity to share their portrait and make a statement for what they stand for. It is a global platform for people to share their untold stories and transform messages of personal identity into works of public art. 



I wanted to try the wheat- paste technique in my house with this poster I did ages ago of David Bowie. I did the mixture which is only flour and water! and pasted the poster in my patio and in one of my kitchen chairs. The one in the patio I don't know how long will last, but at the moment is pretty much well pasted to the concrete. The chair wasn't as successful because the chair has varnish, but if the wood is rough will defiantly work.

In the first paragraph of this post I added the link to the project and the TED TALK he did, if you have time watch it is really fun and inspiring!

Like always I want to hear your opinion of this project.
