Up with JR on 3rd St


Wrinkles of the City project in LA.  As if people weren’t imposing enough already to a frail chicken like myself, JR goes and flyposts enormous, original black-and-white images over buildings across town.  Trust me, nothing is scarier than waking up next to what you thought was an ordinary building only to be caught in the eyeline of a now 50-foot woman.

JR was once (mis)quoted as saying the street is the largest art gallery in the world.  Well, JR, I live in said art gallery and some of us are trying to sleep.  Please keep the noise down.  Thank you.

Up with JR on Beverly


Wrinkles of the City project.  Massive scale, genuine black-and-white photographs blended within the cityscape that make each building come alive with intimacy, heart, and soul.  Either that, or that guy has a really big head and he’s been waiting for the bus a very long time.

JR won the TED Award.  I once met someone named Ted.
