Apply to create and learn at the HoloCenter Pulse Laser Studio in conjunction with Ohio State University.

Each year we offer a 5 day group workshop as well as artist production residencies.  During the 5 day course you will learn about holography and make a master hologram with the pulse laser and transfer this into a holographic print.  A pulse laser allows of for capturing live subjects and freezes motion.

The course is designed for artist and educators who want to extend there practice with holography.  No prior experience is required, however preference is given to people who are perusing an understanding of  holography. If possible we suggest taking our ‘make your own hologram’ workshop if you have no prior studio experience.

We also offer residencies for experienced artists with a project that will lead to the exhibition of holographic works.

More details and application instructions can be found here

To support the creation of new works the Hologram Foundation is offering funding to artists. The intention is to enable the production of high quality collectable holograms for people to own.  Half of the works produced* are to be donated back to the Foundation for exhibitions and sales that will assist with promoting and financing future projects.
