use art to turn the world inside out

 TED TALK decscription: "JR, a French street artist, uses his camera to show the world its true face. He makes his audacious TED Prize wish: to use art to turn the world inside out. A funny, moving talk about art and who we are.  Learn more at insideoutproject.net"  Hat tip to Tad Delay, who says

"This is really good stuff. He discusses his project of pasting Israeli and Palestinian photos side by side along the dividing wall to draw out the humanity of both.I like him for the same reasons I’m a fan of provocateur graffiti artist Banksy. Art, irony, humanity, all in a street level exhibition, with just enough of a political edge to get under your skin."
