Sorry about the lack of posts yesterday . . . I will do double duty today (make sure to check in this afternoon for a second post!).

I first posted about the incredible public artist JR last year. He takes photos of local people in different countries all over the world, blows them up to colossal size, and posts them back in the communities as an ersatz street honorific. His current series is about the strength of women (I topic I believe in!) and the video above is the preview to this new work.

Even better? He just won the 2011 TED Prize and they have a fabulous interview (showing an overview of his work) with the artist here.

(Thanks to swiss-miss for the heads up!)
