Overview

Island of Warmth invites visitors to gather around a large fire, made of more than 150 incandescent light bulbs,
This interactive light installation lets visitors generate the fire’s sounds and movements. Sensors placed under the floor of the platform allow visitors 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.
