Ghostly special effects workshop on Saturday

This Saturday October 30th from 1-5pm, prepare for Halloween by making a new ghostly companion. In our Build Your Own Pepper’s Ghost workshop, multimedia designer Chris Weisbart will teach you how to create the illusion of a 3-dimensional transparent figure standing in a room, using commonly available supplies and some simple optical tricks.

Called Pepper’s Ghost, this Victorian-era stage effect is widely used today at theme parks, museums, rock concerts and even in heads-up displays for aircraft. The largest and most well-known Pepper’s Ghost effect is at Disneyland, in the ballroom of the Haunted Mansion.

The workshop will include a brief introduction on the technique, a build-it-yourself shoebox size mockup and a collaborative construction of a full-sized Pepper’s Ghost.

Register here! Sorry, this class has been postponed! Please email machine@machineproject.com if you’d like to get on the waiting list.
