The Interactive Campfire was designed and fabricated for CAMP Festival – an annual Creative Technology, Art and Design event in Calgary. The project was a collaborative effort of Wild Forest and Edward Keeble.
The campfire installation is an abstract representation of a bonfire in the wilderness – a convergence point for storytellers who share tales of the unordinary. The subtle flicker of the LED strands mimics the hypnotic flicker of real flames. The web application flame.camp provided the user with a choice of adding their own colour “flame” to the fire, becoming a simple symbol of community participation.
