So So So WANT. In Situ. Dickens: Dark London App | A Christmas Carol by. Charles Dickens | Scoop.it
“ The Literary Platform is dedicated to showcasing projects experimenting with literature and technology. It brings together comment from industry figures and key thinkers, and encourages debate.” Charles Dickens’ descriptions of Victorian London have, for over a century, formed an authoritative representation of the city and its inhabitants. It’s with some trepidation, then, that we approach this Museum of London-sponsored app, which augments Dickens’ words with visuals to form an “interactive graphic novel”. Can it hope to enhance an experience that has already withstood the test of years? Somehow, it manages – not least because the images are based on those Dickens produced himself, working under the pseudonym “Boz”. Actor Mark Strong narrates Dickens’ words over suitably grimy interpretations of Boz’s illustrations, which are arranged into comic-style pages. Hotspots allow the reader to access historical trivia and references, while a panel-view mode helps you zoom in on details even when using a smaller screen...
