I found this really great video created by Michael Naimark. He did this twice, once in 1980 and again in 2005. To do this, he first filmed a room– making sure to capture people interacting with the objects inside it. Afterward, he painted everything in the room white and projected his recorded film from the exact same spot where he first shot it. The outcome creates a very lonely and ghostly feeling. The most interesting part for me is when the film pans over the guitar on the wall, which is colored in with the projector, and then a person picks it up, creating another 3 dimensional guitar and leaving the other white copy on the wall. Very cool effect.
