JR Project Women

Bringing to light to one of the largest and decrepit areas of Africa, artist JR created a massive showcase in Kibera Kenya. Taking over a year of planning and organization, the artist covered over 2,000 square meters (approximately 25,500 square feet) of rooftop with eyes taken from the very female inhabitants of Kibera. In addition to the eyes seen on the rooftops, eyes have also been pasted onto a local train and for small periods at a time, intersecting with hillside smiles to create a face. More images can be seen at JR-Art.net.
