Island of Warmth

Montreal, Canada

An electrifying campfire that comes to life

Island of Warmth invites visitors to gather around a large fire, made of more than 150 incandescent light bulbs, an electrifying campfire that comes to life to music that is composed specially for the occasion.

The Island of Warmth is an interactive light installation that lets visitors generate the fire’s sounds and movements. Sensors placed under the floor of the platform allow festival goers to determine the movements of the flames and the music created by the sounds of the fire. As they dance and jump, the visitors kindle the embers, fan the flames and send sparks flying. Flames leap and swirl, creating warmth, light, smoke, and music.

When the most active visitors start dancing and jumping around the bonfire, sparks begin to fly and leap to the top of the luminous structure. The more activity there is around the fire, the more intense are the blaze and the music that accompanies it. The Island of Warmth reaches its peak when everyone around it moves in sync, turning the installation into a symphony for the eyes and ears.

A burst of irresistible collective energy spreads and brings the heart of the city to life.
