The Sonambulist

After a long dry spell, I've come across a bit of Proust news.  The Sonambulist

From the Toronto Globe and Mail:

The final project that husband-and-wife artistic team Deborah Moss and Edward Lam collaborated on before Lam’s death earlier this year will be on display in Toronto this weekend at Nuit Blanche, the annual all-night arts festival.
The Somnambulist is made of large acrylic panels that feature passages from Marcel Proust’s Remembrance of Things Past and Ernest Hemingway’s A Farewell to Arms, both of which express feelings about the night, with each letter set in Swarovski crystals.

Doesn't this sound intriguing?  Hemingway and Proust, a duo that doesn't immediately connote a partnership or indeed any relationship.

Read to the bottom of the article for how the pair chose the authors and what they visitors would react.

The all -night festival Nuit Blanche is held in many cities across the globe.
