Tattle-Tale Heart is a speculative fiction about authenticity, privacy, and connection in social media — all seen through the lens of the human heart. Characters dance on the double-edged sword of technological innovation as they navigate living under biosurveillence in this dark/light-hearted portrait of modern society and queer subculture.
