JR recently won the TED 2011 Prize because of his pervasive photography projects. What started as street art in Paris grew to become a global expository of individuals as unique entities, not as parts of this group, or that race, or this religion. The growth of his projects was organic, unexpected and miraculous all the same. View the video and read more in depth on this artist by clicking this sentence.

GLAD TO THE BRINK OF FEAR

The occasion and the experience…are nothing. It all depends on the capacity of the soul to be grasped, to have its life-currents absorbed by what is given. “Crossing a bare common,” says Emerson, “in snow puddles at twilight, under a clouded sky, without having in my thoughts any occurrence of special good fortune, I have enjoyed a perfect exhilaration. I am glad to the brink of fear.”

-William James, from “On a Certain Blindness of Human Beings”
