Do You Know is a participatory collaboration between English artist Kasper WImberly and American Artist Steven Beatty.
See more on the Do You Know...? blog.
The ‘Do you know’ club (a.k.a the ‘So, do you know’ club) has been formed, and welcomes further members to join this time consuming, costly but potentially rewarding activity.
While travelling away from ‘home’, the conversation sometimes follows the following pattern:
Where are you from?
I’m from England
Oh, so do you know Jonathan Peacock?
Of course I don’t know Jonathan Peacock, or at least the chances of this would be very very small indeed, but as a member of the ‘Do you know’ club I am obliged to go and meet this person at the next possible opportunity. This meeting will be documented and posted online. My first obligation will be to visit Tobias in Stuttgart, a friend of Steves. He doesn’t know me …yet.
At present it is not foreseen that members can do you know one another. This might lead to impossible and fabricated missions. Maybe this is a good thing.
