Ghost Ship Appears @ Night

A BRO reader has passed along an idea that shows how diverse concepts can be when we look to the Inner Harbor for inspiration.

A Romanian video projection company called VisualSkin came up with the idea to incorporate water, wind and light elements in order to create a ghostly structure on the water. The artwork was created for the 2014 Amsterdam Light Festival. The creation was recently featured on, along with a very interesting back story that well suits the “Believe it or Not” crowd.

This sort of artwork opens up so many doors, when thinking about the various possibilities for the Inner Harbor, the Buffalo River, etc. We’ve seen light projections, and wind sculptures… the addition of a fantastical water element should be considered as well.

    Love it!

    I don’t see any reason why this couldn’t be added. I’m not sure it’s a Summer-long type of display, but seeing as it isn’t permanent, has no impact on land usage and is without question eye-catching…why not?!

    Very amazing looking and would look awesome in the Buffalo River right across from CanalSide. Cost for the “art work” may be an issue. Maybe we could get it donated like “homeless Jesus”.

    Northbuff  Thanks for posting that. If I wasn’t already convinced, I think this picture would have done it. Hadn’t considered the cost (in ignorance it “appears” rather simple), but I now see it certainly could be. Either way, I’d be excited for something like this. Perhaps a replica of a Canal-era ship?

    Looks like a Job for the E.M. Cotter

  • This somewhat reminds me of the Epcot light show at Disney World.
