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.

The term ‘Ambient Literature’ refers to writing that knows where its reader is through the use of technology. To find out more click here.

My piece will take the form of a geo-located app and will be a fictional piece situated in London that unfolds as users move three three different city locations. The content will combine 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 September 2017.
