“It was as if she was gathering a collection, the fragments and slivers of desire…”
Every chapter within The Secret Language of Desire contains unique interactive elements which support the narrative and themes of the work. On screen objects – flowers, telephones, keys, photos and other items – can be touched, triggering animations and sound. Several chapters contain graphics that can be rubbed off to reveal the “hidden” content waiting underneath. Sound design enriches the animations with distinct audio elements, interlaced with original music and phrasing by saxophonist Martin Kay.
Here is an off screen recording from iPad, showing some of the interactive, animation and sound elements of the app. All content © Megan Heyward 2015. All rights reserved.
