TED Prize Winner JR & INSIDE OUT from TED Prize on Vimeo.

INSIDE OUT is a large-scale participatory art project that transforms messages of personal identity into pieces of artistic work. Everyone is challenged to use black and white photographic portraits to discover, reveal and share the untold stories and images of people around the world. These digitally uploaded images will be made into posters and sent back to the project’s co-creators for them to exhibit in their own communities. People can participate as an individual or in a group; posters can be placed anywhere, from a solitary image in an office window to a wall of portraits on an abandoned building or a full stadium. These exhibitions will be documented, archived and viewable virtually. INSIDE OUT is a collaboration between the artist JR, the TED Prize and you. INSIDE OUT is funded by The Sapling Foundation, Social Animals and generous donations from people like you. JR’s TED Prize

This is simply BRILLIANT! BRAVO, JR…BRAVO!

About JR: JR is 25 years old and owns the largest art gallery in the world. He exhibits his arts freely in the streets, attracting people who are usually not visiting museums. His work is a mix of art and action, reflecting the concepts of political involvement, freedom, identity and boundary. He describes himself as an “artivist”, a condense of artist and activist. With his 28 mm lens, with people wincing, huge posters and his anonymity, the photographer does not give any interpretation and leave a free space to allow the subject/actor and the bystander/interpreter to meet. With the surprise and the questions that JR is raising, each of us can review our own thoughts and free ourselves from stereotypes and prejudices. This is all JR’s work: to ask questionsâ?¦
The 3rd step of the 28 mm lens project, Women Are Heroes, was directed in Africa, in post-war zones. JR took photography of women of whom he wanted to share their painful stories and to testify their urge for life. The women’s portraits have been exhibited in Sierra Leone and Liberia.

Stefan reports:

“Good morning. Mrs. Joyner and her 6th graders at Davis Middle School in Gainesville, GA made some excellent, excellent Monsters that I think you must see! (Special shout-out to Kevin!) Aren’t they cool?”

A note from Mr. Bucher:

Good morning. Just because I’m tinkering away at some bigger Monster issues shouldn’t mean that I stop drawing them, should it? It’s so easy to stop drawing. And we can’t have that. So here are two new Monsters, fresh from my pen to your home. Please see it as a little reminder that 344 LOVES YOU

Stefan is in an uproar.  Someone has had the audacity to market a “Monster-Go-Away-Spray,” a product for the low-low price of $9.95 that purports to zap innocent monsters who only want to play hide and seek with little ones.  Some people will do anything for a dollar, including defaming blameless monsters.

One of Stefan’s monsters has been “Pumpkinized” by Terry Hardin.  Mr. Bucher explains:

“The brilliant Terri Hardin was on the team that designed and puppeteered the Stay-Puft Marshmallow Man for Ghostbusters, and helped build the still-suits for Dune. She designed and puppeteered the Foster Farms chickens, but she also—and I found this out at the book signing at the West-Hollywood Book Fair organized by my friends at Dark Delicacies in Burbank—carves a mean pumpkin…

Of course, I immediately hit her up to carve one of the Daily Monsters, and she was kind enough to say Yes. Last Wednesday I packed up my camera and drove out to Terri’s studio in Burbank, where I filmed her as she carved a Monster cameo into one of the biggest pumpkins I’ve ever seen (or helped carry, for that matter). Take a look at the two-minute-version:”

MONSTROLUMINESCENT PHOTOS
Good evening. You know how I couldn’t get photos of the new glow-in-the-dark Monsters yesterday? Well, turns out all you need is a 500W bulb to charge the ink, a tripod, a 30 second exposure with a few second of faint ambient light from an open closet door:

Unfortunately, we could not recreate the full luminescent affect here but if you go HERE you will have to cover your eyes…it is just that brilliant.

Good morning! I hope you’re having a good October so far. I just got back from the excellent 5D Conference in Long Beach, and I have some totally unrelated good news for you: The Daily Monster Facebook app is ready! It’s called SEND A MONSTER and lets you scare all your Facebook friends with Daily Monsters. And these are all new Monsters, I’ll have you know. Twenty of them, with more to come as we get closer to Halloween. Exclusively available on Facebook.

I hope you’ll go check it out. Send a few Monsters to your unsuspecting victims. What better time than the days leading up to the great autumnal Spookinox! More seasonal Monster Goodness is coming your way very, very shortly… And please, face facts: 344 LOVES YOU

“My Bodyguard” was a film (1980) about a kid who “hires” a rather huge classmate to protect him from a group of bullies, led by a young Matt Dillon. 
Stefan offers us his 21st century interpretation of every 95 lb. weakling-without-a-prayer’s secret wish:

I’ve said for the longest time that “play is serious business.”  I’m not the only one. 

Exhibit A:

“The biennial Art Center Design Conference (May 7th, 8th and 9th, 2008) is a three-day international gathering of entrepreneurs, thought leaders, and innovators from many fields and disciplines.  The 2008 Conference, Serious Play,  explored the essential role of play in business, the arts, science, storytelling, technology, and more.”

Oh, yes.  Stefan is dipping into a whole new bag: SKATEBOARDS.

MONSTER SKATEBOARDS

Good morning. Another of the item I’ve been working on lately just got released, and I’m excited that I can finally tell you about it: Zazzle just started offering custom skateboards today. To mark the occasion they invited a whole group of artists to populate their inaugural line-up of decks, including… you know… me. And so, without further ado, please meet the Monster Skateboards!

Rolling down the sidewalk, jumping curbs, casually looking down and seeing your monster’s glossy reflection on your board…what could be better than knowing you’ll never have to skateboard alone again?!
