Ghost Ship – Amsterdam Light Festival

Screenshot 2014-12-23 at 7.47.38 PM

An image of a ship is projected on two intersecting bodies of water which makes a ghost ship.

The Flying Dutchman is back! Anchored in front of ARCAM Amsterdam Center for Architecture and The National Maritime Museum, the 17th century ghost ship rests motionless on the surface of the water. When the wind picks up, the ship comes to life; its sails fill and the vessel sways back and forth. Across the water is the colorful replica of the famous Dutch East India Company ship that started its maiden voyage to Batavia in 1749, but that was wrecked in a storm on the English Channel and fell prey to looters.
