Artworks sculpted in light combine elements of colour, depth and visual space.  Drawing on a range of inspirations and from various backgrounds six artists employ holography for its dynamics of space and light.  As Setsuko Ishii describes ‘Spinning colours of light are threads that become a malleable form like clay.’

Each hologram creates a distinct choreography of light, and invites the viewer into a dance of implicit and explicit dynamics. The undulation of light and the movement of the body fold and unfold in the composition of these holographic scenes. The hologram offers artists extra dimensions that catch and shape these dynamics.
