This chapter is the third of three interviews that explore how the concepts and precepts of ambient literature are exemplified through the creation of a work of digitally mediated fiction. In this chapter, Kate Pullinger discusses how 'Breathe' utilises the affordances of the reader’s smartphone by leveraging data, including weather, time and location, in order to personalise the story to every reader. Pullinger describes the collaboration behind the project, developing the narrative through the use of variable or conditional text, as well as discussing decisions about the grammar and mode of storytelling used in creating the work.
