Ghost Carwash

Fog machine, projector, water pump, mixed media

Ghost Carwash is an interactive installation commissioned by Wreck City Collective for the DemoTape Project. Control panels form the old carwash were re-wired to allow participants to activate the installation: dispersing fog into a self made fog screen, revealing ghostly projections of old cars at the carwash, rinsing the screen, and vacuuming out the fog to reset.
Our urban landscapes ceaselessly transform to keep up with the mad rush of an evolving metropolis, but these past spaces have a lingering presence. Gone, but not forgotten. Ghost Carwash is an interactive installation that creates a visual representation of this ephemeral phenomenon.
