TED Prize

The TED Prize was started in 2005 and awards an individual the opportunity to change the world by spreading a positive, hopeful message. This year the winner was semi-anonymous urban Parisian artist 'JR'. He doesn't explain his huge full-frame portraits of people making faces, leaving the space empty for an encounter between the subject/protagonist and the passerby/ interpreter. JR's wish is " for you to stand up for what you care about by participating in a global art project, and together we'll turn the world...INSIDE OUT."  Read more about the InsideOut Project.
