This light art installation by Michael Bosanko shows that with some good camera work it doesn't take much to create something riveting. The image pays homage to a classic game that has stood the test of time as one of the greatest video games ever created -- Pac-man.

Much like sparklers in the summer, cameras can capture moving light to create images that in reality don't actually exist. In this image we see Pac-man and his usual assailants, the ghosts, only three of which make an appearance.

The Pac-man image is beautiful because it's solid and smooth, but the ghost images are especially captivating because of their details flowing bodies. The setting looks like an old abandoned building, which is light years away from the walls that usually house the yellow semi-circle.
