A water-made Flying Dutchman? Well, the ‘Ghost Ship’ installation from Romanian architecture studio visualSKIN pertains to this otherworldly ambit, with the entire display ‘floating’ on a canal in Amsterdam. In case you are wondering – the ship embodiment was achieved by projecting water in two curtains. This dual scope of layering endowed the final illusion with a depth of field, thus furnishing the installation with a 3D dimensional bearing.
The Ghost Ship was created as an exhibition for the renowned Amsterdam Light Festival. The illusion is currently ‘anchored’ off the buildings of ARCAM Amsterdam Center for Architecture and The National Maritime Museum. It will remain for display till 18th January, 2015.
