Gimbal offers a new way of reading the city. Choose a city – anywhere in the world – and be transported to it by its fiction. Designed with the commuter in mind, the Gimbal enables you to escape the tedium of your everyday ‘known journey’ and take an alternative route, a more scenic, imaginary one. Choose a story according to where you wish to visit, or the length of time you have to spare, and the ‘LISTEN’ function will lead you across an interactive map of that city accompanied by an audio reading.
The Authors on Gimbal include:
