Underbelly

Abstract

'Underbelly' is a playable media fiction created for the web about a woman sculptor carving on the site of a former colliery in the north of England, now landscaped into a country park. As she carves, she is disturbed by a medley of voices and the reader/player is plunged into an underworld of repressed fears and desires about her sexuality, potential maternity and worldly ambitions mashed up with the disregarded histories of the 19th Century women who once worked underground mining coal. 'Underbelly' incorporates a rich and often grotesque mix of imagery, spoken word, video, animation and text, and the reader must explore its mysterious map-like interface, using their mouse to play the story.
