Project Description: Large Scale Interactive Fire Experience

The Heart Machine is a collaborative project by interactive arts (i.a.) that combines sculptural structures, flame effects and technology to create compelling interactive art that both welcomes and needs participants. The Heart Machine was not built by one single artist, but through the combined efforts of many creative minds, hearts and hands.  In addition to volunteers who helped with the creation of the heart machine during educational how-to workshops, the project had a core team responsible for getting the heart machine to Burning Man for 2010.  The Heart Machine was an official Burning Man Arts Grant Committee 2010 Honorarium Project.

The Heart Machine Team is broken into two portfolio pieces; the original version and team for Burning Man 2010 and the Scotia Bank Nuit Blanche 2011 version and team to be exhibited in Toronto.

For more information about The Heart Machine and the individual artists involved please check out the home page for The Heart Machine at interactive arts.
