More JR

I blogged about JR a few months ago and since then he seems to be cropping up everywhere with incredibly inspirational and motivating projects and films. I watched the above video today and it really blew me away. My favourite quote from it:

"Art can change the way we see the world, art can create energy"

*salute* JR's artworks and ethos are consistently insightful and effective, he executes his political message forcefully and elegantly, producing emotive and humane installations that are both deeply personal and political. His work makes an undeniable truth of the assertion that art can change the world.

It's International Women's day and I have to admit I got a bit depressed reading sad statistics on sites like www.weareequals.org, important to read them and be aware of them, but depressing none the less! JR's amazing work cheered me up, Women are Heroes:
