.Interactive video (16:9 vertical), color, no sound, variable duration, 24” LCD screen in black frame (70x50x10cm)


Just like a real candle, but flat.

This is an interactive candle. A video shows a candle calmly burning. If someone blows on the screen the candle flickers or, if the blow is strong enough, it is blown out.


A video of someone interacting with the Candle:

Some frames:

Technicalities: two bend sensors capture the air movement around the frame. Their signals are sent to a custom-made amplifier and then fed into an Arduino which finally sends them to a Raspberry Pi which is responsible for generating the video based on the sensor data. The code can be found in GitHub.
