Can art change the world?

JR owns the biggest art gallery in the world. When we found out about his work, it struck us as an amalgamation of some ideas we’ve been discussing. While he works in a style similar to Banksy, his art is on a scale that is both enormous and more intimate. His ideas strictly grow from the hope that art can change the world. He was a 2011 TED prize winner. This video is of his talk at TED – it may take about 30 seconds to load, but we encourage you to watch even the first few moments. We were inspired and intrigued enough to watch more. Thanks so much to My Love for You is a Stampede of Horses for bringing this to our attention.

This is the first image we saw of his work. At first we weren’t even sure of what we were looking at because the scale is hard to wrap one’s head around…
