Secret Language of Desire in Norway for ELO 2015

It’s been a busy couple of weeks as I’ve just travelled to Bergen, Norway for ELO 2015; a major conference and exhibition on Electronic Literature. Secret Language was exhibited as one of the curated electronic literature works, where projects were exhibited in several locations around Bergen, including the Bergen University Library from which these photos are taken. It was a great launch – every artist briefly spoke about their work; and then the conference attendees raced to interact and experience the projects and talk to the artists. It was jam packed, I only had a moment to grab a few photos in between speaking to people and showing the work. A wonderful experience to share the Secret Language of Desire with an international audience – thank you Copyright Agency Career Fund for your support in helping me to attend this important international conference and exhibition!!

Secret Language website

Last week we recorded some beautiful saxophone with musician Martin Kay, and have worked very hard to complete all of the sound design. The project has now been submitted to Apple for review. Meanwhile I have built a quick WordPress site for The Secret Language of Desire.
