Fiery Sparks Of Light, An Augmented Reality Experience

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 renowned Canadian women poets Margaret Atwood, Nicole Brossard, Canisia Lubrin and Sarah Tolmie as an augmented reality experience. The accompanying printed book contains QR codes that trigger Volumetric cinema holograms on a mobile device of the poets reading their original poems, while audiovisual effects augment the viewer’s experience.


Fiery Sparks of Light is part of the literary program of Canada’s Guest of Honour at the Frankfurt Book Fair 2021 and is produced with the participation of Telefilm Canada. Fiery Sparks of Light, is a CFC Media Lab and York University Immersive Storytelling Lab Co-Production in Partnership with Griffin Trust For Excellence In Poetry supported by OCAD University.
