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.
