Artist Photonics

Elisa Balmaceda - light art, 2014

Holographic memories and explorations of optical dynamics come to the HoloCenter for ‘Artist Photonics’.  Shaping, twisting, and splitting light, artists create work where the photons are the medium.  Imagery is carved by luminance, color and space hold form.
