JR “Women Are Heroes” Container Ship

French artist JR has launched a special project on a huge scale from the port of Le Havre, France centered around a 365m long container ship (CMA CGM MAGELLAN). Working with over 151 containers, he used them as pixels to recreate the eyes of Elizabeth, a Kenyan women that calls the Kibera slums in Nairobi home. The vessel leaving the port will mark the end of this series that he started in ’07, and will travel onward with his work through the Mediterranean sea, past the Suez Canal, and finally to Asia.
