This chapter is the second of three artist interviews that explore the practice-based research outputs that are central to the Ambient Literature Research Project. In this chapter, James Atlee discusses 'The Cartographer’s Confession', a work of fiction, in relation to his body of work as a writer of non-fiction, including travel writing and writing about art, and his work as a musician. The multiple narrative layers of 'The Cartographer’s Confession' are inscribed onto the map of London across time and space, creating a work that animates secret histories of the city. In this chapter, Atlee describes the making of the work both conceptually and practically.
