James was one of three writers, along with the novelist Kate Pullinger and the digital artist Duncan Speakman, to be commissioned to create a piece for the Ambient Literature Project. The result is The Cartographer’s Confession.

To read more about the project visit the Ambient Literature site.

The term ‘Ambient Literature’ refers to writing that knows where its reader is through the use of the technology of the smartphone and which has a visceral connection with a sense of place . The Cartographer’s Confession is a geo-located app situated in London that unfolds as users move between three different city locations. The content combines voice, video, prose, original 1940’s photographs of London, commissioned illustrations, 3D soundscapes and a bespoke musical score to create a rich literary experience. It launches in October 2017.
