JR, a semi-anonymous French street artist, uses his camera to show the world its true face by pasting photos of the human face across massive canvases. At TED 2011, he makes his audacious TED Prize wish: to use art to turn the world inside out. We’ve seen JR’s work in the past, but this new video offers a deeper glimpse into the artist and his wish to change the outlook on art while highlighting its great importance. Enjoy!
