Inside Out / Episode 1

JR is changing the world with his Inside Out Project.

JR InsideOut Project ted artist street photography

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.

  • it is interesting to see the negative reaction – i want to see the next part NOW

  • Ariela R

    This is simply amazing

  • the japan part is so sad.

  • 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

  • yohji

    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!

    • Bilou

      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…

Sculptures by Jaime Pitarch Strip Everyday Objects of Their Functionality

Subject, Object, Abject (2006) – Chair, wooden shavings from chair legs

 

I’m obsessed with these sculptures by artist Jaime Pitarch that I came across on the Spencer Brownstone Gallery website. The Barcelona-based artist explores our relationship to household objects by making subtle and not-so-subtle alterations rendering them completely useless. He says the works have “to do with the human being’s inability to identify with the structures he himself has created”.

Have a look at more images below.
