How will you take part in JR's TED Prize wish?

First, if you haven't seen it yet, watch the amazing TED Prize speech given by French street artist JR. He's initiating a spectacular global art project that anyone can participate in. But how? This is up to the creative imagination of people around the world.
- Is there an amazing "invisible person" you know of, whose portrait should be shared with the world?
- Is there a tough issue you'd like to stand up for in public with your own portrait?
- Can you imagine energizing a local community around either of these?
- Can you imagine finding a spectacular local site to post giant portraits?
- Other thoughts? (You may spark something for someone else!)

  • Mar 7 2011: I would like to take part but I can't think of any issue I'd like to stand up for, any person that should be shared or any good location to put the portrait. But maybe I'll figure something out later.
    -other thoughts.
    About changing the world with art. Sometimes when I paint something in school, instead of brining it home I tape it to the wall at some random place in school. It's against the rules but I can't see why it would upset anyone and if it seriously upsets them they can just take it down. (Also, they probably don't know I put it on the wall without permission! Haha! I win!) I don't think it's changing the world but hopefully it's making it a little bit prettier :)
