I have been commissioned, along with the novelist Kate Pullinger and the digital artist Duncan Speakman, to create a piece for the Ambient Literature Project. To read more about it visit the Ambient Literature site here.
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 . My piece is a geo-located app situated in London that unfolds as users move three 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 will launch in October 2017.
