The Secret Language of Desire is a unique electronic literature project that traces a woman’s journey from everyday life into a landscape of sensuality and desire. Merging 27 ultra-short chapters with interactive animations and sound, The Secret Language of Desire offers an intimate, alluring and surprising storytelling experience for adults.
Every chapter contains elements to enrich the narrative – objects can be touched, triggering animations and sound. Written and developed by Australian digital media artist Megan Heyward, it features original sound design by Michael Finucan, and the lilting saxophone of Martin Kay. The project is optimised and available for a digital reading experience.
The Secret Language of Desire has been supported by the Australian Government through the Literature Board of the Australia Council for the Arts, its arts funding and advisory body. It includes mature content and themes.
The interactive eBook/ ePub version of this project will be published in 2022.
