Making good on his TED Conference wish, French street artist JR is using his craft to make a difference in the world with his “Inside Out” project. Encouraging people from around the globe to send in photos of themselves, JR has printed these photos and is now pasting them in various locations. JR’s first destination was Tunisia where he has covered a wall with photos of the people in the very same spot where a portrait of Ben Ali was kept. The symbolic gesture serves as a testament to the power of art, giving some hope for the future to the people of Tunisia.
