Our ArT ExploratioN leader Emanuel Ciobanica is developing, and further supporting a Global art project called: “The Inside Out Project” and attempting to gather a new team that can help “turn the world inside out”. Inspired by the global project started and promoted by the artist JR. **
THIS IS A GLOBAL ART PROJECT THAT TRANSFORMS MESSAGES OF PERSONAL IDENTITY INTO WORKS OF ART !
Project name: Exploration
Location: Canada / Romania
Bringing awareness through beautiful artistic photos and community involvement in areas that do not have the means to encourage change. To support art and the artistic community in the area, through materialization and expression of relevant concepts. The project name is “Exploration” because we are exploring new ideas, new ways of expressing ourselves and our identity.
The reason behind my choice of location (Canada / Romania) is very specific. Not only am I emotionally connected to both, but I also feel that there’s a strong need for this kind of public art that raises awareness and shifts perception. Romania desperately needs that, and Canada could benefit from it as well. There is something I’m trying to say with that photo and my choice in location, I will not give everything away but there are some connections to be made by each viewer.

ABOUT THE INSIDE OUT PROJECT = 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 are made into posters and sent back to the projectʼs co-creators, for them to exhibit in their own communities. People can participate as an individual or as part of a group. Posters can be placed anywhere, from a solitary image in an office window, to a wall of an abandoned building, or in a full stadium. These exhibitions will be documented, archived and be made available online at http: http://www.insideoutproject.net.
The INSIDE OUT project is a creation of the artist JR, recipient of the 2011 TED Prize (watch JR’s TED talk).
