Proust: The Kiss of the Matrix

With “The Kiss of the Matrix” Véronique Aubouy proposes to more than 3000 people worldwide to read in front of their web-camera a page of “A la Recherche du temps perdu” by Marcel Proust. After this experience, all of the words have been read in french, by people of all backgrounds, what will provide a film of approximately 170 hours.

The web-shooting will take place live on the Internet from September 27, 2008 twelve o’clock GMT. It is open to all. Véronique Aubouy invites you today to register on her blog and you are free to  invite friends to build a network of “Kiss of the Matrix.”

On 8 October 2008, the Bibliothèque Francophone in Second Life will join the reading by inviting 30 avatars who will all read a part of the text in the grounds of Ebeoplex, while they have taken place on a giant mandala.

Of course, as curious as we are, Véronique Aubouy is willing to tell all who is interested about her project on Friday 4 September at the Bibliothèque Francophone.

The “Sail Away” project (2)

Rafale Kamachi has a small production company based in Wales, Hilight Ltd, and in this background she has started to produce a innovative film project.

The full length animation film (machinima), Sail Away, will be all the way filmed in Second Life, on the isle of Remember. And it will be taken in at least French and English.
Although there is no budget at all for this very exciting and huge project, all builders, scripters, designers, directors and all others work very hard to make this movie reality.

The Bibliothèque Francophone is very happy to support Rafale Kamachi in this beautiful project and has dedicated a part of the garden to “Sail Away”. Feel free to come and see.
