I am going to make you into art. Simply fill out my survey at www.unfamilia.org and you, yes YOU, will be transformed into art.

How can I do such a thing? It’s easy! All the information submitted through the site will be compiled into a narrative literary work. This work will take the form of either a play, multiple narrative poems, or a combination. Within this work, all participants will be transformed into characters whose traits are drawn directly from the information given in the survey.

The survey I have created is modeled from the extensive questionnaires asked by dating sites, such as Match.com and Eharmony.com, in order to create an accurate "personality profile" for each participant in the project.

While the literature will be based off the information submitted, I will not use any last names, as to protect your identity, etc.

DISCUSSION

Unfamilia.org


The site, UnFamilia.org, is the first phase of a user-based content project and collaborative endeavor requiring information submitted by many, many users.

You go to the site, fill out the survey, and voile! You will become art! Michelle will compile all information submitted into a literary work. It will either take the form of a play or narrative poems.

In creating this site, Michelle hopes to take the unfamiliar users and create a virtual "family."
