The Window Project presents Aperture Ghost

About the Installation:
“Aperture Ghost” is a new work by Babacar Ndiaye which uses a combination of sequential art and filmmaking techniques. Motivated by the shadowy film-noir art of Frank Miller and based on a motion graphic novel based on the experiences of the creator while growing up on the Southside of Chicago. Graphic novels such as Spawn and Brotherman Comics helped to form the backdrop for the unlikely urban antihero, Aperture Ghost. An aperture ghost is an anomaly that occurs when light hits a camera lens at a particular angle. This ghostly figure that results is a metaphor for the way the antihero blends with his environment surreptitiously and with ease. The vision was created by Babacar Ndiaye and helped brought to life by Franz Gatzke, a student at Savannah College of Art and Design.
