Artworks sculpted in light combine elements of colour, depth and visual space. Drawing on a range of inspirations six artists from various backgrounds employ holography for its dynamics of space and light employ holography for its dynamics of space and light.
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 holographic medium offers artists extra dimensions that catch and shape these dynamics.
The Holographic Art Grant is a competitive award that recognizes outstanding artists working with holography. The selected projects are chosen for artistic merit and originality. The Holographic Art Grant provides production funding to enable artists to create high quality art holograms.
