Haunted Hologram Heads are 3d style illusions of floating heads that appear above smartphones and tablets. The illusion makes use of mobile devices to project video onto an upside down, see through plastic pyramid made from acetate.
Neil Winterburn developed a new app that splits video footage from a computers webcam, splits it four ways and then exports the result as a video file.
The Haunted Hologram Heads activity was developed by Neil Winterburn and commissioned by FACT.
Participants were invited to visit the Haunted Heads salon and perform as a disembodied ghost by pulling faces into a webcam.
Videos of disembodied heads and instructions to make your own peppers ghost pseudo hologram viewer and download hte software can be found on the project website.
