Ambient Literature and the Reader's part
June 30, 2017. United-Kingdom. The full paper, by Tom Abba, in The Bookseller.
The work It Must Have Been Dark By The, by Duncan Speakman, takes the form of a mobile phone app and a beautifully designed book, both of which guide you through the city you are in, seeking out types of locations in your own environment, offering sounds and stories from remote but related situations. As they traverse their city, each listener/reader is invited to tie those stories to their location, creating a map of where they are right now and of places that may not exist in the future.
