An immersive and sensory celebration of poetry and the critical role women have played in creating Canada’s international literary reputation, Fiery Sparks of Light reimagines a collection of poems by four renowned Canadian women poets as an augmented reality experience. Using volumetric cinema technology as the foundation, an accompanying printed book contains QR codes that trigger holograms on a mobile device of the poets reading their original poems, while audiovisual effects augment the viewer’s experience.

Discover three AR poems by viewing this PDF excerpt of the book on a secondary mobile device, or printing it. Download the free app for either iOS (Apple) or Android (Samsung, Google, HTC, etc.). Scan the poem's QR code, then point with the camera of your mobile device at the front cover of the book to see the author appear as a hologram reading the poem. Watch this preview video for visual instructions.

Detailed Directions:

Step 1: Download and Open the Fiery Sparks of Light app. (If this is your first time using the app you will be prompted to allow camera usage. The app will not function without this permission as it needs to see the codes both to select the correct Hologram, and to position it on top of the closed book.)

Step 2: Find in the Fiery Sparks of LighRt Chapbook, the QR Code* beneath the poem you wish to see the poet read in Holographic form.

Step 3: Scan this Code with the camera on your phone using the Fiery Sparks of Light app.

Step 4: With the Camera on your phone aim at the front cover of the closed book moving so the full cover can be seen on the screen. The Fiery Sparks of Light book cover is the stage for the holographic experience. (You can rotate and tilt your phone around the book cover to see the poet from different angles.)

Step 5: To view another hologram at any time tap the button at the bottom of the screen.
