You’ll know by now I’m a huge advocate of digital convergence, and this piece is one of the very best I’ve ever seen, it takes the concept to new heights… It’s called Bear 71, an interactive, multi-user documentary experience and installation that debuts at the Sundance Film Festival.

Bear 71 Live observes and records the intersection of humans, nature and technology in a live, Internet connected event. Questioning how we see the world through the lens of technology, this multi-user, interactive story blurs the line between the wild world and the wired one, and allows users to explore the bear’s natural habitat in a number of very cool ways, including the Nature grid, though an array of motion sensors, live streaming web cams, GPS equipment and the like…

It launch last weekend to 30,000 visits a day without any paid media. Created by Jam3 and The National Film Board of Canada. Click here to experience Bear 71 now.
