On Friday afternoon, I participated in #InsideOutNYC with some other teachers from The School at Columbia University. More photos in my Flickr set here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/specialkrb/sets/72157633360741423
The Inside Out Project’s mobile photobooth is parked in Times Square daily from 12pm-8pm through May 10th. The truck has a large-scale printer inside, so you receive a 3′ x 5′ printout of your photo. Then, you can either take your giant face home with you or have it pasted on the plaza in front of the TKTS red steps. More info about #InsideOutNYC here: http://www.insideoutproject.net/en
The artist JR used his TED Prize winnings to launch the InsideOut project in 2011 to reinforce how art can change the world. Since then, I’ve helped two groups of 8th grade participate in InsideOut initiatives, and I’m hoping to bring this year’s group of 8th graders down to Times Square next week to participate! I’ve previously posted about my student projects here and here and here.
I recommend visiting the installation and participating if possible. I’m also thinking about how we can do something similar in-house…
