Light My Fire is an interactive installation thought for the museums or temporary exhibitions. The interactive principle is simple and intuitive. With the help of a match, the visitor can “Fire” projected animations that appear over his head and are visible to all other visitors. The flame from the match is the starting point for the animations. Every animation is supported by sound, giving a more spectacular sensation. This installation is both playful and a research of the interactive and visual approach.

SIGMASIX is a Geneva - based experimental studio combining a large spectrum of practices with a focus on lighting design, scenography, museography, mechanical effects and installations. Each project is seen as a new take on existing technologies, interactive strategies, and a new opportunity to merge techniques and art to offer unique and exceptional experiences.
As a practice SIGMASIX is in a constant search for magic and poetry obtained by allowing alien technologies cohabit together. The studio’s ambition is to repurpose technologies to spaces and objects. It does so with an extraordinary capacity in integrating technicalities to the point of dilution where perception breaks down to the core of the concept.
Initiated in 2004 by Swiss artists Eric Morzier and Florian Pittet, SIGMASIX works both on art and research projects as much as commercial and consulting ones. Today, the studio has a small team and works with a vast network of freelancers and interns to make sure all project and ideas are aligned with each and every client’s needs.
