ARTIST REQUIRES AUDIENCE PARTICIPATION FOR LONDON MAPS
What is your greatest achievement?

[It can be work, home or any other postcode as long as it is within
Please reply to the abridged version of The Questionnaire de Proust
party game above in order to participate in a feel good art project.
Your answers can be personal or professional, light or deep, mundane
or truly exceptional. Also feel free to circulate this email to
friends and colleagues that live/work within the boundaries of
London [central and greater London 33 boroughs].
Thank you for providing the data for the anecdotal maps ‘Land of
Achievement’ and ‘Land of Wisdom’.
Your details will remain confidential, only you will know where you
fit on the map.
As the identity of the participants remains anonymous, contributions
are open to interpretation, stimulating the imagination of the
audience. That is an integral part of the project. Almost 700 people
from all over London and all walks of life have already contributed.
The anonymity element allows the contributors to be true to
themselves at the source.
It also prevents the audience from making judgment based on gender,
race and creed downstream.
Originally a party game from the French Belle Epoque era, Le
Questionnaire de Proust gives great insights into the psyche of the
respondents. Marcel Proust, author of “In Search of Lost Time” made
such an impact when he participated twice that the Questionnaire was
named after him.
I will be honoured to share your words of wisdom.
