Set in London, The Cartographer’s Confession combines fiction and non-fiction, imagined and real locations in a tale of migration and loss, hope and retribution. Discover the research materials for the film of the same name, including cassette tapes, personal letters, original 1940’s photographs and illustrations, which lead to the dark secret at the story’s heart. Featuring 3D soundscapes and a bespoke musical score by group The Night Sky.

Written by James Attlee, author of titles including Isolarion, Nocturne, Station to Station and Guernica: Painting the End of the World. 

IMPORTANT! This app requires the use of headphones. The story is written to be experienced around London. It takes around 4 hours to complete, but you can take a break whenever you wish and resume the story where you left of. Location services and Wi-Fi need to be turned on and your phone fully charged. Not in London? The app's ‘Armchair Mode’ offers a different experience, enabling you to explore the research materials and construct your own narrative, anywhere you may be.
