Things that inspire me

My Wish: Use art to turn the world inside out (TED)

Another favorite TED Talk. This one is by French artist JR whom won the 2011 TED Prize. The TED Prize is awarded annually to a leader with a fresh, bold vision for sparking global change. The winner makes a big wish – one that will inspire thinkers and doers across the globe to get involved. And JRs TED Prize talk wish:  To use art to turn the world inside out.

In some ways, art can change the world. Art is not supposed to change the world, to change practical things, but to change perceptions. Art can change the way we see the world. Art can create an analogy. Actually the fact that art cannot change things makes it a neutral place for exchanges and discussions, and then enables you to change the world. (JR TED2011)
