A curious initiative taking place at the National Media Museum in Bradford, UK:
Read Aloud is an installation by Ross Phillips that invites the public to perform lines from a chosen book in a collective effort to read the entire work. Performed books can be enjoyed online and in the gallery from the moment the first line is recorded.

Commissioned as part of the National Media Museums "Life Online" exhibition, the work seeks to engage visitors to the museum in an experience that encourages creative and collaborative play.

All media generated by the installation will be made freely available on this site in the hope that new works will be created.
One of the chosen books is no other than Jane Eyre. The project is not completed and in the moment of the publication of this post, these are the numbers:
Jane Eyre
by Charlotte Brontë
9757 lines.
2440 lines read.
24 % complete.
