Tracking Traces of Fire lost in pubs

Traces of Fire is an art exhibit and social experiment that traces the movements of ten cigarette lighters tagged with transmitters to provide location and motion data frequencies.

The artists ‘lost’ the lighters in pubs in Limerick and observed during two weeks how they were carried around town by unknown people.

Tracking the lighters and collecting position data is achieved with the help of transmitters normally used as animal implants in wildlife habitat studies.
