Artist Opportunities

Joey Steigelman Pulse Laser Workshop OSU 2019Apply now for the Pulse Laser Workshop in Columbus Ohio

Each year the HoloCenter and OSU team up to offer artists a five day introduction to holography, with a focus on pulse laser recording. This hands-on workshop is taught by artist Sam Moree and physicist Prof. Harris Kagan.

Applications are also open for artists to come to the pulse laser studio in Ohio and shoot a project. To apply for the studio residency you should have a clear idea of your project and experience working with pulse holography (such as taking the Pulse Laser Workshop)

Applications Due February 23

Space Light open call

Apply for the SPACE:LIGHT program

Do you want to learn more about optical media and display technology while developing your art practice?
The SPACE:LIGHT program aims to support artists experiment with broad notions of holographic imaging, including multiple dimensions and immersive media and/or employ light or optical media as an artistic medium. Applications are now open for project development

International Day of Light

Each year on May 16 we celebrate light

Art of Light event at the HoloCenter ON CANAL

International Day of Light, 2019 – artists who create with light will share their work.

Art of Light • Thursday May 16, 6-9pm • HoloCenter | ON CANAL

Artist talks: Eric Leiser ∙ Lindsay Packer ∙ Matthew Schreiber
3D film: GENTLE STORM by Ikuo Nakamura with music by Hayes Greenfield
Performance: OCEAN Shoko Tamai in response to the artwork by Sam Moree
3D projection Maximus Clarke PARTY OF ONE
and screening on loop: PEACE LIGHTS by Pete Rogina and Eileen Cohen
About the speakers:

Matthew Schreiber brings together mischievous humor and technical precision to create otherworldly spaces with laser installations and within holograms. His artworks induce powerful encounters with the potency and mystery of light.

Lindsay Packer plays with the call and response of color and light, form and site in photography, film and video, installations, and improvisational performance. With a spontaneous spirit and non-hierarchical approach to materials and process, she creates immersive environments that are integral to and inseparable from their architectural and sonic contexts.

Working with experimental film, live performance, installation, puppetry painting and holography Eric Leiser explores how animation transforms perception when it is brought together with the space of live action. His fantastical artworks have a surrealistic quality where light takes on crystalline properties.
