Creating fiction with the Touch Board

For example, she found moss and green leaves worked well as they had more water content,  so were more conductive, whereas dry leaves needed augmenting with something conductive. She also experimented with Electric Paint, copper tape, tinfoil and conductive thread.

As part of her PhD research at Lancaster University, she worked on a project to retell the myth of Persephone for contemporary audiences. Being able to try out ideas and move quickly back and forth between the technology and the writing process was really valuable for her and had a huge impact on the stories she ended up making.
