I am seeking people to act as surrogate Body Project card collectors. My goal is to have 1,000 cards before the online archive is officially launched. Right now I have about 250 cards. The general idea is that you will hand people provided cards with the request “Please breifly describe your body.” They have about five minutes to answer in whatever way they see fit. It is anonymous and there are no requirements for what the participant writes on the card in their native language. I am really hoping to get a variety of responses from all over the globe. I will get the cards to you if you get them back to me.
Body Project in Bei Gao, Beijing, China
1. You send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org with your address, the number of cards you would like, and a guess as to when you think you can finish the cards.
2. I will send you cards, a description of the project, and some pointers about passing cards out.
2. When you receive the cards you simply pass them out to friends, colleagues, teachers, family members and the public (if you have a buddy).
3. You stick them in an envelope and send them back to me.
4. Wait anxiously for the website to launch in 2012 so that you can see the fruit of your labour!

Thank you so much!
