In Ghost, visitors are recorded on camera and then added to a swirling blizzard installation.

In the interactive installation Ghost, you can watch yourself and other viewers get caught in a virtual snowstorm.

The installation consists of a large screen depicting a raging snowstorm in an empty landscape. Viewers can see a line of human forms caught in the snowstorm. These figures are basically short recorded sequences or the ‘ghosts' of previous visitors who came to see the installation.

The snowstorm is seen through a camera panning over the landscape and the line of ‘ghosts' making their way through the storm. When Ghost detects a new viewer, a camera moves towards him or her and a 3D version of the viewer is automatically added to the installation. The viewer can see himself within the snowstorm. As written on its project page, ‘Ghost attempts to trap viewers; as they are looking into the landscape, they become part of it.'
