Ghost Ship – Stunning light installation by visualSKIN
Romanian architecture collective visualSKIN builds upon the maritime history of the city by projecting an eerie apparition along the surface of the surrounding water.
ghost ship’ is an illusion of a 3-dimensional, 17th-century boat, rendered by two intersecting planar projections — beamed onto vertical, perpendicular planes of water.
The artwork is not only nocturnal mirage in the low-lit urban landscape but also a retro-futuristic hologram, simply using water curtains and old-fashioned stage lights.
The wind plays an important role in achieving the dreamy and haunting quality — when it picks up and blows against the arching streams of water, the image wavers, appearing to the viewer as sort of tactile magnetic field.
