A GHOST

THE CONCEPT

A  white vortex pulsating in a cylinder of light

A cylinder of light stands on a barge floating in the water.
Moving air, contained in the glass cylinder, circulates in a closed system causing a vortex to form.
White water vapour, acting as a signal material, is caught in the light and reflects how the air moves and dances.

The dancing of the vortex is caused by electronically varying the speed and flow of the air in the system.

TECHNICAL PRINCIPLE

THE TECHNICAL PRINCIPLE
Built on a barge; all elements will be enclosed and physically tied to the metal structure.
At the bottom of the machine a round chamber contains the lighting and a smoke source. Smoke enters the glass cylinder through small holes in the glass floor. At the top of the machine a suction chamber connects to the intake of the air blower. A continuous vortex occurs naturally in this system.  The ghost will be made visible by a shaft of “parallel” LED light inside the cylinder.
