The intimate narrative history of a human being can be related to painful events of his life. Thus in our installation : Internauts ask questions to a volunteer thanks to a website. When a question is not satisfactorily answered by the volunteer, a non-verbal painful signal is sent to him by the administrator. The output is that our software-art installation allows us to display the resulting speech of the volunteer in real time on a weblog exhibited on the Web, joining intimacy to globality.
