A new foundation has been established by Hugues Souparis (founder of Holographic Industries) to finance and promote holographic art.
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.
