This locative experience from Bournemouth University & Doppelganger Productions links multimedia stories to Mary Shelley’s tomb.

Shelley’s Heart celebrates the 200th anniversary of Frankenstein by linking 4 story-paths to St. Peter’s churchyard, the site where Mary Shelley is buried. Debuting on the 31st of October (Halloween) 2018, this interactive, multi-media experience features modern versions of Mary Shelley, Lord Byron and John Keats, plus the ghost of Percy Shelley. Reality and fantasy merge within your smart phone as these characters confront fears and desires manifest as Mary’s most celebrated and ferocious creation, the Monster.
