A fusion of writing with film, photography, music and video games.
Digitally born stories
Dreaming Methods is a showcase of highly atmospheric digital art that merges writing with new media to explore new forms of storytelling - from lost dreams and abandoned journals to fully realised 3D worlds. Take a look at our portfolio
Dreaming Methods aims to push the boundaries of literature by merging text with highly accomplished digital art. It was established in 1999 by Andy Campbell, a UK-based artist and writer. Andy is the Director of Digital Media for One to One Development Trust which seeks to support Dreaming Methods through subscriptions and donations.

Electronic literature, according to Wikipedia, is a literary genre consisting of works of literature that originate within digital environments and require digital devices to be read/experienced. Dreaming Methods aims to bring that concept to life by creating powerful, compelling and visually stunning works that explore abstract, complex and contemporary themes. Text in our works always exists - but does not always dominate.
Dreaming Methods works are generally very media-rich and benefit from a good computer spec. We have several apps available for Android phones and tablets - but the majority of our stories/games are best viewed on a desktop computer in a darkened room with the sound up. We don't do e-books or hypertext fiction. Our stories involve text and reading - but only as a part of the overall experience. Be prepared for anything.
