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.

      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…
