Celestial Ballerina, 2016
series of five digital reflection holograms, 600 x 600 mm

Lana Briscella, Celestial Ballerina voiceheart

Merging the worlds of technology, art and dance, Celestial Ballerina redefines the classical ballet and moves the performance off the stage and into a new digital realm.  Each work offers a captivating glimpse of the emerging art form of digital holography through harnessing the power of the ballet.  Briscella’s approach to art and technology is to make tangible worlds from the digital.  Using the technological element of 3d scanning, she recreates moments of time and motion.  The perceived imperfection of technological glitches are juxtapose with delicate patterns producing an aesthetic that highlights a digital interpretation of dynamic space.

Celestial Ballerina was created with support from Zebra Imaging

Michael Bleyenberg
Renaissance:re

Michael Bleyenberg GERMANY
‘Architecture and light, the permanent and the ephemeral can be put into a state of creative tension.’

Describing his work as ‘light architecture’ Bleyenberg is best know for his large scale installations using diffractive holographic elements and dot-matrix hologram prints.  He considers these holograms as projectors, casting light through space.  He calls them „Agents of light“. While such holograms have no image depth the shifting colours produce a different dimension.

Bleyenberg trained and practiced as a painter before focusing on compositions with optics and light.  He has exhibited extensively in Europe and was featured in MIT Museum’s Luminous Windows: Holograms for the 21st Century.  Bleyenberg’s public art commissions include Eyefire- Holographic Wall for the DFG, German Research Foundation, Bonn, Germany and New Burlington Flare diffractive light installation for New Burlington Place, London, England among others.

Renaissance:re, 2016/7
Renaissance:re is a series of holographic portraits which (re)establishes a connection to the Italian renaissance painters of the 15th century and the masters of early dutch painting. Quite a number of these artists used optical aids . They employed mirrors, prisms and lenses to create their highly detailed and realistic paintings and drawings. Like today, attaching importance to the science and technique of their time lead them to new ways of artistic depiction.

three views of:    Renaissance:re_Pisano 100 x 100 cm

Combining drawing and computer generated sketches Blyenbergs’ portraits link together concepts in art and philosophy.  His research into the relationship of optics to painting styles informs these works which seek to push the application of light as a pictorial tool.  Dynamic drawings of light are composed with the undulation of spectral colour.

Patrick Boyd
Morris Dancers

Patrick Boyd UK
Boyd’s work brings attention to the element of time in holographic images.  He creates holograms from sequences of photographic footage that capture action within the hologram.  Boyd photographs every-day events with a ‘hand-held’ vernacular style placing the viewer as bystander within the scene.  His work with pulse laser hologram recording takes a very different approach. Here the narrative is told through objects, often worn by the subject in meticulously constructed of fictitious scenes.

‘My works of meticulously created installations & captured sequences blur the boundaries between two & three dimensions.  I try to present a colourful world where real life, narrative, light & shadow connect & collide.’

Boyd has an MA from the Royal College of Art, London and was a fellow of the Academy of Media Arts, Cologne.  He was awarded a year-long artists residency at the Museum of Holography in New York and has created multiple projects through the HoloCenter pulse laser residency program.  His solo exhibitions include  Butler Museum of American Art, Youngstown, OH, USA; Royal College of Art – Link Gallery, London, UK and Art House, Takasaki and Neuse Gallery, Maiebashi, Gunma-ken. Japan.

Random Memories, 2016
Sculpture with hologram panels 160 cm tall and 21 cm wide

Pascal Gauchet, Vanishing Memoriestotemmock

An abstract space forms across multiple hologram panels.  Virtual windows within physical panels produce a fragmentation and continuity of shapes.  Colors combine and intersect charging the space around and between the holograms.   

‘My art work is mostly concerned with physical colours and the iridescent hues due to the diffraction of light.’

Multi-channel holographic print on mirror 460 x 580 mm, edition of four

Setsuko Ishii, Fragment of Nature – Landscape, 2016 image-d2
In this dynamic holographic image layers of color and space to create an atmospheric landscape inspired by water and grasses.  As the viewer moves around the colors shift, layers revealed unifying a sense of being with the holographic scene.  

Fragment of Nature – Landscape was created at Holographics North, USA with the assistance of Dr. John Perry

Fred Unterseher
Kinetic Figures

Fred Unterseher USA Cliquez ici pour le texte en français


The Light Foundry Team – C. (Alex Clark) Fred Unterseher (Awardee) and August Muth (owner/operator of The Light Foundry).
Pioneer of holographic art Unterseher expertly engages viewers with his passion for visual perception, light, kinetics, consciousness and community.

‘With the artwork I am interested in capturing a moment that the viewer can interact with.  The hologram plays back a dimensional form of light where the viewer directs the sequence by their movements. The emphasis remains on the viewer’s interactive experience with the work’

Unterseher gradated with honors from San Francisco Art Institute participating in collective artist projects including with ANT FARM and the formation of Project Artaud.  Unterseher was a pioneering member of the San Francisco School of Holography with Lloyd Cross and Gerry Pethick.  Later they formed the Multiplex Company that produced stereographic holograms, including artworks for Salvador Dali.  Unterseher has exhibited extensively at galleries, museums and educational institutions in Europe, Asia and throughout North and South America.

Kinetic Figures, 2016
series of four 22 x 26"dichromate reflection holograms with dynamic lighting

Kinectic Figues fred UnterseherFred Unterseher hologram Kinectic Figures

Layered 3-dimensional pulse laser recordings of the figure dance in light.  The soft contours of the female form trace out an intangible space.  Geometric shapes disrupt this space while tethered through a dynamic of color.  

For Kinetic Figures Unterseher is composing figurative holograms that are animated by the motion of the viewer and dynamic multiple point lighting.

Fred Unterseher – artist essay on  KINETIC FIGURES
Kinetic Figures are the continued explorations involving kinetics (movements) of the human
figure. The work combines holographic images to create artworks that enhance the perception of the
figure in motion. The holograms pay tribute to the tradition of some of the first visual, both
scientific/artistic, studies of humans in motion conducted by Etienne-Jules Marey and others
throughout the late 1800s. Marey considered that the artist “while taking Nature as a model,
makes an independent choice“ of the attitude of the body in motion. Kinetic Figures invites the
viewer/participant to explore varied images that are distinctive to each individual by the choice
of their movements during the act of experiencing the artworks. Kinetic Figures includes a pair
of artworks one titled “Inclined to Recline” and the other “Double Vision”. “Inclined to Recline”
portrays a kaleidoscope of figures generated from the movements of a single female figure.
“Double Vision” is a three dimensional visual echoing of the figures using 3D multiple
exposures. In both artworks the figure’s movements can be viewed forwards, backwards or in
any combination in and out of sequence. The contact with the work can be somewhat
unparalleled for each viewer/participant since they experience intertwined, overlapping and
mingled figures in space/time. Technically the holograms are best described as triple slit rainbow
holograms that allow for a mixed secondary order of colors that includes more “pastel like hues”.
In most instances when experienced the multi-channels in different colors tend to blend, creating
images that really aren’t even there since one eye sees one image channel while the other
eye sees a different image channel, the brain fuses both views into a coherent image. Together
they contribute to an experience that is unique.
With the artwork, there is a continued reference to the key model of renowned physicist David
Bohn and his concept holomovement. It brings together the principle of undivided wholeness or
what he referred to as the universal flux and includes the idea that everything is becoming or in a
course of action. His view was that wholeness is not a constant oneness but a vibrant wholenessin-
motion in which everything moves together in an interconnected process of becoming.
