Ghostly Figure Spotted in Sydney Harbor

Brisbane design firm The Buchan Group has successfully summoned a ghostly figure from the waters during Vivid Sydney 2012 (May 25 to June 11). Before anyone goes running and screaming for an exorcist, here is a little something you should know. This giant of a ghost is, in fact, a subaquatic light sculpture called “sub|version” created with projection mapping. Here is some more information about the work:

The piece is an innovative mapped water projection, and can be seen near the northern Overseas Passenger Terminal tower. The installation extends the virtual performance into the waters of the Quay itself and features elements usually found only on land, including high-contrast people and scenes submerged in symmetry with the spectators. A spotlight reveals forms, figures and patterns hidden in the depths.
