Inside Out / Episode 1

JR is changing the world with his Inside Out Project.

Watch the inspiring video below!


The project is a call to men and women to stand up for what they care about by contributing to a large-scale participatory art project.  They do this by uploading a personal statement and portrait to the website (www.insideoutproject.net) and pasting them in the streets.

Now, participants can upload video content of their pasting actions to the Inside Out YouTube page. These submissions will be used in the creation of a final film.

    ah, this is wonderful! one thing the child says at the end really sums up the project beautifully: “it’s not the same face but it’s the same people.” as simple as that :)

      ya the people they interviewed were great, like the kid talking about being asked about the glue on his hands, doing it for his people

    The place in Japan has actually nothing to do with the earthquake, it was an strategic island wich was abandoned after the 2nd worldwar, i’m saying this because I was wondering why they picked this location.

    This is one of the most inspiring things I’ve ever seen! I love how they were all helping put the photos up.. but holy crap wtf @ the end?! I want to see the next part as well now!

      They made a book to document the project (I know it’s available easily in France, I don’t know about N. America), and it makes the point of those ripping the photos off clearer: This act that may seem violent is in its own way a means of expression. It’s a way for the people to reaffirm that what goes on their walls is up to them. I guess when they have been deprived of freedom of speech for so long, the Tunisians won’t let their opinions unheard.

    Interesting share. Totally expected these peoples reactions, and I could relate so much to this video, as you tend to receive same to exact ‘confused public’ feedback whenever you attempt an artistic presentation here in Egypt…

In honour of Kanye’s surprising new album artwork and title, “The Life of Pablo”, Andy, Joey, and Drew made a Kanye Album Art Generator. My version is dedicated to my little friend Mika.

*Update – If you missed the live stream of “The Life of Pablo” and the debut of Yeezy Season 3, it’s playing on a loop here.

This is nuts! I wonder how many times they had to shoot this (and how much plane fuel was used). Watch “Upside Down & Inside Out” on Booooooom TV.
